FAQ-173: CDA as second assessment for performance option
Question: Can a CDA be credited as a second assessment if an operator desires to move to a performance-based program?
Answer: No. Confirmatory Direct Assessment is a streamlined method that does not provide as much information about the pipeline as assessment methods required for baseline and periodic reassessments.
