In the Apprenticeship for Child Development Specialist (ACDS) program a journeyperson is someone that has completed all four semesters of coursework, between 3200 and 4000 on the job training hours (OJT), and has received his or her Department of Labor (DOL) certificate. If you meet those requirements we ask that you complete our journeyperson application and return it to the ACDS office by mail, fax, or email.
