CNA Training Classes in Arizona

A job as a CNA can be both challenging and very rewarding, which is why there are many people taking up CNA courses each year. The curriculum of CNA programs in Arizona are well-equipped to provide top-notch training for future Certified Nursing Assistants. In order to enroll for training classes, there are several admission criteria that you have to meet.

Admission Requirements

Admission requirements are pretty much standardized across the country, although there may be some additional requirements that may be asked of you depending on the school or training center you are applying to. Here are a few of the basic requirements you have to prepare for:

  • Legal age – You must be at least 18 years old or older in order to be allowed to apply for CNA training programs. It is best to prepare supporting documents such as your birth certificate and at least 2 valid IDs that can prove you meet this requirement.
  • High school diploma – Training to become a CNA involves at least a tenth grade understanding of General Sciences, Mathematics, and English communication. You need to show your Diploma and transcript of records to assess if you meet this criterion. If you are home-schooled, a GED certification will suffice.
  • Background check – Some schools require one or both, a medical check and a background check. Simply submit these so they can verify that you are in good health and also in good standing within the country.

Tuition & Fees

The tuition and fees for CNA programs vary between training facilities, so you may want to clarify this by contacting them. You might also inquire about any financial aid that you can take advantage of. Some long-term care centers allow students to train for free if they agree to work for them for a specified period after they graduate. If you do have to pay fees, there are some centers that agree to reimburse those fees if you work for them after you graduate as well.

Course Duration

In Arizona, the minimum number of training hours is 120. This is mandated in order to ensure the efficiency and quality of the CNAs that graduate in the state. The number of weeks will vary from center to center.

Facilities that provide CNA programs in Arizona can be nursing homes, hospitals, community colleges and private training centers. When it comes to choosing schools or training facilities, you have to check if they are duly licensed and registered to make sure your training will be accredited.
