A 2014 Governor’s Career and Technical Education Grant funds this CNA Training.

Participants complete the training program in one quarter. Training consists of on-line learning modules, skills review, clinicals, and certification testing. The Certified Nursing Assistant Training Program meets the South Dakota Board of Nursing requirements for CNAs. CNAs work under the supervision of a registered nurse, LPN or other supervisory staff.

This CNA training will  allow you to enter the healthcare field in a short time. You may start working as a CNA while you finish high school. Some technical or post-secondary healthcare education fields require CNA certification.
