Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs of Study

The Early Childhood Development Technical Certificate contains courses in curriculum development and child behavior. These courses are designed to meet the mandatory competencies for the Birth through Pre-Kindergarten Teaching Credential required by Act 187, passed by the Arkansas Legislature during the 2009 session.

Students must earn a grade of “C” or better in all courses taken to satisfy the Technical Certificate in Early Childhood Development. This program of study includes special program fees beyond current tuition and college fees.

Note: All students are required to have a current clear maltreatment background check, a clear FBI and criminal background check and a UA-PTC Education ID badge in any education course. If a criminal background check is returned with a felony conviction or a true report of child abuse or neglect, the student will be immediately dropped from all courses with an ECTC, ECD, or EDUC prefix. There will not be a refund of fees or tuition. This also may affect financial aid awards.
