Learn More About Early Intervention Assistance (CA)

The Early Intervention Assistant Certificate of Achievement is designed to prepare students to work with infants, toddlers, and young children with disabilities and other special needs in early intervention settings and inclusive early care and education settings. All professionals working with children are required to have a clean criminal record, demonstrate freedom from tuberculosis (TB), and demonstrate the physical ability to perform all of the duties of a professional position working directly with children. Students may want to continue their course work to meet the requirements of a Master Teacher or Site Supervisor California Child Development Permit. The California Child Development Permit Matrix requirements are reflected in our program allowing students to qualify for the permits required for teaching in programs governed by Title V and funded by contracts with the State of California. Permits are issued by the State Department of Education, California Commission on Teacher Credentialing (not Porterville College) and include: Assistant Teacher, Associate Teacher, Teacher, Master Teacher, and Site Supervisor.
