Professional Development

Individualized Professional Development (iPD) Portfolio

Note: We will be performing maintenance and upgrading the iPD platform on May 28, 2020, starting at 8 p.m. ET. You will not be able to access the iPD that evening. Your account will be accessible again on May 29, 2020.

The iPD Portfolio is an online platform created to support ongoing professional development for staff in Head Start and child care settings. It contains accessible, self-paced modules based on staff roles and interests. Check out this step-by-step document to learn how to access the iPD.

The iPD platform provides Continuing Education Units (CEUs) for several courses. These CEUs can be used to meet Child Development Associate® (CDA) professional development requirements. The Council for Professional Recognition is extending the deadline for the CDA® Renewal Amnesty Program to June 30, 2020. If you are a CDA® credential holder with an expired credential as far back as Jan. 1, 2010, you are eligible to participate. Check out additional information from the Council.
