Free training for certified nursing assistants
May 19, 2015

The continuing education division at Wor-Wic Community College is offering free training classes for current certified nursing assistants (CNAs) to advance their careers. The classes begin on Monday, June 8, and will be held from 8 a.m. until 1 p.m., on the college campus on the corner of Route 50 and Walston Switch Road in Salisbury.

The “CNA Advantage” class includes 55 hours of classroom instruction and 45 hours in a clinical externship at a local health care facility. The training includes communication skills, documentation, infection control, food and nutrition, customer service, stress management, conflict resolution and basic first aid certification.

Enrollment is limited. Interested CNAs must call Teresa Tyndall, Wor-Wic’s continuing education director of allied health, at (410) 334-6781, for an individual interview.

These classes are made possible by an Employment Advancement Right Now (EARN) grant awarded to the Eastern Shore Area Health Education Center by the Maryland Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation.
