KOM offers free Re-CNA classes in partnership Roseville Adult Basic Education for individuals who have completed CNA training, but struggled to pass the written exam. The class consists of three steps:
Step 1: Get refreshed
Attend evening classes that review the vocabulary, concepts and ADLs from CNA training.
Step 2: Earn while you learn
After 2 months of review, participants are matched with a paid, part-time internship at an assisted living facility. While working, they continue attending classes to build vocabulary and reading skills needed to pass the written exam.
Step 3: Test again
After 6 to 10 months of earning and learning, participants will take the test again for FREE.
- Have successfully completed CNA training before and can provide proof of training completion
- Desire to start a career as a CNA and be authorized to work in the US
- Currently unemployed or underemployed and interested in finding work at end of program
- Meet income guidelines
Our current CNA class began in mid-October 2018 and will continue until the summer of 2019.
In class, participants get to work with other students to build on their English skills and medical terms. They also do hands on work for the CNA skills piece and get to be placed at an internship site near to their home to experience what it’s like to become a real CNA.
