How to Get Free CNA Training
Free CNA training? Bet you’re wondering, how is that possible? Believe it or not, some employers are willing to give you free CNA training. In fact many hospitals, long term care facilities and nursing homes will give you all the training you need. You must be sure that these courses are reliable and certified, so do the proper research to avoid wasting your time.
Some employers will also give you free CNA training resources such as journals, textbooks, websites and other helpful study aids for as long as you work for them. Depending on how busy you are after work, however, this may not be the right option for you. Studying full time could be a better option, especially if you have very little free time outside of your working hours.
Search online and call up all the hospitals in your area if you need an employer to pay for your CNA training. You might be lucky enough to find a hospital affiliated with a local college or universities that will sponsor your training. You may have to work four days a week and spend one day in class, but this will get you around the problem of studying after work.
If you’re an exceptional student you may also meet the criteria for a grant or scholarship that would give you free CNA training without you having to work at all. The grant money is usually enough to cover most or all of the courses. You can get in touch with colleges in your area or the Department of Public Health for more information.
You don’t need to start from scratch to qualify for free CNA training. If you’re already working you should ask your employer about extra training or qualifications. If the training would benefit your work most employers would be happy to send you on the course.
