asked in Training by anonymous
I'm looking to get my CNA certification and I am hoping that some business may pay for classes in exchange for full-time employment. I am a hard worker currently employed in a medical field. I would like to know if there are any free or paid CNA classes in Pennsylvania specifically in Lackawanna County.

Here is a list of schools and facilities which may offer nurse aide training in Scranton, PA.

Long-term care nursing facilities are responsible for the full payment of training and testing cost if you are employed or offered employment as a nurse aide at the time you enter a nurse aide training and competency evaluation program. Federal law prohibits these charges from being imposed on you.

If you are not employed with a long-term care facility at the time you are accepted into a nurse aide training and competency evaluation program, but become employed or receive an offer of employment within 12 months of completing the program, you will be reimbursed by the long-term care facility that employs you.

Reimbursement will be made on a pro rated basis. You will be reimbursed for half the cost of training and testing after you have worked at the long-term care facility for 130 hours and the remaining half of the training and testing cost after you have worked an additional 130 hours. You must provide written documentation to the long-term care facility to support your request for payment.
