Our Certificate Programs
Our certificate programs are Title 22 (CCLD) compliant and go towards meeting the educational requirements of the State of California's Community Care Licensing division of the Department of Social Services. In addition to meeting the state's requirements, Theoria Technical College certificate programs can be applied to meeting the Child Development Associates (CDA) National Credentialing Program.
The three (3) components need to be completed within 90-days including attendance of the 2-day lecture.
Independent Study and Reading Assignments:

Assignments can be completed prior to sitting in the 2-day lecture or up to 90 days after attending the 2-day lecture. The number of assignments varies from course to course for an average of about 6 assignments per course.

Online (Distance Education) in our live-interactive virtual learning environment.
The 15-hour lecture can be completed by either attending in-person at our Carlsbad facility or by attending on-line the very same lecture in a live interactive online classroom. In this live environment, you will be able to see, hear, and interact with the instructor, the on-site students, and online students.
The practicum is like work experience. Students are required to complete 45 hours of practicum at the center they are currently working at or volunteering at a licensed child care facility. If students need assistance in locating a volunteer practicum location, they should contact Theoria's Operations Department who will try to help with placement.
