IMPORTANT NOTES:IF YOU CHOOSE THE SPLIT-PAYMENT OPTION, YOU MUST PAY $350.00 AT TIME OF REGISTRATION AND THE REMAINING BALANCE MUST BE PAID BEFORE THE FIRST DAY OF CLASS, JULY 12th . CNA classroom/lab training will be conducted on Saturdays, July 12th through September 6th in the Murphy Building - Room 314 from 8:00 A.M. until 4:00 P.M. We will skip the weekend of August 30th for Labor Day weekend. Clinical sessions will be conducted on Saturdays, September 13th, 20th, and 27th. It is our policy during clinicals to maintain a ratio of 10 students to 1 instructor. For large classes, it will be necessary to schedule both morning (6:30 A.M. to 3:00 P.M.) and evening (2:45 P.M. to 11:15 P.M.) clinical sessions. We will try to take into consideration each person's needs in developing the clinical schedules, but if we reach an impasse, we will use the date a person registered for the course to determine who will attend which session. Certification Test dates for this class are tentatively set for Thursday, October 16th and Friday, October 17th. Testing will start promptly at 8:00 A.M. each day and will continue until every student has completed both their written and skills portion. It is usually close to 6:00 P.M. before all students have completed their testing. When you receive your registration confirmation, there will be two (2) attachments containing important information regarding the CNA course. Please be sure you open both attachments.
