CNAs are caregivers who provide patients assistance with activities of daily living and basic needs. They also help patients feel safe and comfortable throughout their hospital stay. These direct caregivers spend most of their time assisting patients and listening to their concerns. The State of Maine approved CNA course includes classroom work, skills labs, and clinical experience. This is an Integrated Education Training (IET) course which means that a certain number of hours will be spent on improving key health care soft skills: job searching, mock interviews, communication, customer focus, medical math, technology, and more. Candidates must present either a high school diploma, or HiSET/GED. Enrollment is limited to 10. The admission process includes enrollment into our Career Readiness Program, a criminal background check, placement testing, and a series of meetings with PVAEC staff. A non-refundable application fee of $50 is required. The cost of the class is $1,150, which includes tuition, textbook, background check, and state exam.

Payment plans and financial assistance may be available to those who qualify. For more information, or to enroll in this program, please contact PVAEC Academic Advisor, Eve Salley at 564-5884.
