Where To Find a Free CNA Training?

20 Ways You know You are a CNA
There are a number of places where you can get CNA training for free:

The Workforce and Continuing Education Department have a grant which will pay for the CNA course, uniforms, help with transportation costs and even daycare to QUALIFIED applicants. (must be low income, out of school, and 17-21 years old)

Free Cna Training

Free Cna Training

Nursing homes in your area. Many of them hold free classes in exchange for you working for them. Get the phone book. Look up long term care centers and call them up and ask.

Look for local regional occupation programs (ROP) in your area. If the CNA program is not free, then it will be very low cost- $100 or so.

Some hospitals have contracts with local colleges. Their courses are free to the student.

The CNA/HHA Scholarship Program sponsors FREE CNA and HHA training for qualified individuals who would like to become Certified Nurse Assistants (CNAs) and/or Home Health Aides (HHAs) and work in long term care.

The program covers the full cost of training, including the CNA state certification exam. It is administered by the Massachusetts Extended Care Federation (MECF) and funded through the Massachusetts Department of Public Health.

    14. Ana says:

      I never heard of any CNA training in California that’s low cost of a $100! Even ROP in LA are over $1500, so much money! American Red Cross is also $1400. Plus you’ll need a BLS card, and a Fire card, they also cost money to obtain them, but not much. Anyone knows where I can get a lower cost for CNA training and certificate exam included in L.A?

      By the way you need a Physical exam and TB test before you take the class, CPR should be included in the training, if not, you need to get it on your own.
