CNAs are caregivers who provide patients assistance with activities of daily living and basic needs. They also help patients feel safe and comfortable throughout their hospital stay. These direct caregivers spend most of their time assisting patients and listening to their concerns.
The State of Maine approved CNA course includes classroom work, skills labs, and clinical experience. The course is a 15- week course of 190 hours. This course will prepare you not only to become a CNA, but will also help with your reading, study, and math skills. We will give you the advantage of work readiness training to help build your resume and prepare for employment in the medical field. Our course includes additional academic support for those who need or want it.
At the successful completion of the course, students take the State Certification Examination. Course cost includes the State Certification Examination.
Admission process includes the completion of an application packet, a score of 240 on the CASAS test (a reading assessment) and an interview with the instructor. Candidates must be at least 18 years of age and have a high school diploma or equivalency, or be working towards their diploma.
