Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) Program

  • The Lake County Office of Education offers a course designed to train you to become a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA).  Under the supervision of a health professional, usually a licensed nurse, a CNA provides basic nursing services to ensure the safety, comfort, personal hygiene, and protection of patients/residents in a licensed long-term, intermediate health care facility or hospital. Upon successful completion of the Certified Nursing Assistant course, graduates receive a certificate of completion and are eligible to take the state certification exam.

    A portion of the cost associated with this program has been paid by the Adult Education Block Grant of California in order to reduce the course fee for students.

    Our CNA program is undergoing a program revision at this time. We do not anticipate offering a CNA program in Fall 2019 and aim to run this program again in Spring 2020.

    Please check our website on August 1, 2019 for a program update.

    You may fill out a CNA Interest Card, to be notified of changes to program schedules.
