We strongly desire that anyone who sincerely wishes to train as a CNA, may find a way to do so. Please ask school staff for alternate methods of funding training. While the school itself does not offer financial aid, we can refer you to several different sources, to seek assistance in paying for school, if you qualify. Please do not hesitate to ask.
