    Hello Sonam,

    Here are a few details obtained from the CDA council

    The Find-a-PD Specialist Directory is a database for candidates to use to locate a PD Specialist in their area to conduct the CDA Verification Visit®.

    To use the Find-a-PD Specialist Directory, candidate’s enter their work zip code, their classroom setting and the language in which they teach into the database. The database will generate the names and descriptions of PD Specialists nearest to the candidate. The candidate then selects the nearest PD Specialist and sends a request to the PD Specialist to conduct their CDA Verification Visit®. If the PD Specialist is available to complete the visit, they will respond to the candidate with their PD Specialist ID number. The PD Specialist ID number is required to complete and submit the CDA® application.

    All active CDA PD Specialists can be found and selected in YourCouncil. To access the Find-a-PD Specialist Directory, login to YourCouncil and click the Find a PDS button located on the left side menu.
