I have an AAS (Associate of Applied Science) degree, but I am unemployed at the moment. while searching for a job, I noticed that jobs prefer Early Childhood Education Credential as a requirement. How do I, and where do I start to earn such? Do I take classes? And then after classes, what do I do? Do I have to take a test? I am confused. I tried to search online and There are degrees for ECE, and then there is CDA … what is the difference?
