People interested in preparing for a career as a certified nursing assistant can sign up for introductory training at Lewiston Adult Education. The class is being held on Aug. 10.
“Health care continues to be a very in-demand job field, and the Ready2Work class lets people prepare for a new career. We have already celebrated a new group of CNAs graduating this summer. Next month, we will be ready to help those looking to make a move into a new career,” Lewiston Adult Education Director Eva Giles said.
The class will prepare students for the Maine state certified nursing assistant program Lewiston Adult Education runs with St. Mary’s Health System. Topics include confidentiality, critical reading and computer skills. The first 100 hours in the program will help them become familiar with employee expectations for CNAs.
Students will earn a readiness certificate with a successful completion of the class. The certificate is recognized throughout the health care industry.
People interested in the Ready2Work training in conjunction with the CNA class may contact the Lewiston Career Center at 207-753-9001 for more information. The class can be free if approved by the Career Center and if participants are eligible.
Anyone with additional questions may contact the Lewiston Career Center at (207) 795-4141.
