Interested individuals must submit a completed application to be considered for a CNA and/or HHA training program. The application can be found here. Once an application has been received, our staff will contact applicants by email with a student information packet and schedule a day and time to move forward with the screening process.
Prospective students will be interviewed by phone to verify information, interest, commitment and employment expectations. Information will also be collected to assist in matching with training programs based on the student's location, needs, learning style and accommodations. The screening process can take approximately 2-4 weeks and will vary as individual needs and training programs have different processes.
Training Program Matching Process
Students who have completed the screening process and are eligible for training will be matched with partnering training program options. Once a training program has been selected, the student will receive all training documentation including a checklist, handbook and acceptance letter.
