The Child Development Training Consortium (CDTC) is a statewide program funded by the California Department of Education, Child Development Division (CDE/CDD) with Federal Block Grant Child Care and Development Quality Improvement Funds. The Yosemite Community College District administers the program. The program was created in 1982 to address the critical shortage of qualified childcare workers in the state of California. The demand for qualified workers continues to grow. The program also supports the professional growth and development of those already working in the field.
