Annual Training Online

We offer online training to providers who are unable to attend a live session. If you did not attend a group training during the last six months, you must complete this online training and quiz by July 31st, 2018. CDA is required by the Department of Education to declare any provider who has not completed the annual training Seriously Deficient.


1. Review Materials

We have included the materials discussed at the live training. After you have read through the training, you will be able to complete the Annual Training Quiz.

The quiz is automatically graded on the computer. When you put in your name and provider number (the same one used in Minute Menu) and finish the quiz, a message is sent to CDA notifying us that you have completed it.
