Nursing Assistant Skills Training (CCNAST)

Certificate of Completion

CNA evaluation is mandated for employment in long-term care facilities. Upon completion of the program, individuals will be qualified for multiple job opportunities with good starting salaries. Positions frequently offer flexibility and variety, as well as a sense of self-satisfaction for "making a difference" in a person's health.
