Free CNA training classes are usually offered by assisted living and other long-term care facilities. Even though there are several training schools in Bridgeport, Connecticut, none of them are long-term care facilities. If a free nursing assistant program is what you really want then you might want to consider facilities providing training in a different town. To inquire about the cost, scheduling information, and admission criteria at the schools listed in Bridgeport, you should contact each program individually. A list of programs may be found here: CNA Training Classes in Bridgeport, CT.
I believe that long-term care nursing facilities are responsible for the full payment of training and testing cost if your are employed or offered employment at the time you enter a nurse aide training and competency evaluation program or within 12 months of completing the program.
