Engaging our community to end poverty

CNA Testing in Process.  Future Jobs Likely!

8 participants sat for the Certified Nursing Assistant exam recently at Community Action Duluth.  Their training and connections to employers has prepared them for career building employment in the health care field.

This new partnership with the instructing agency, the American Red Cross of Northern Minnesota was an exciting initiative that allowed for evening classes with dinner and childcare to eliminate barriers for the already working parents to be able to attend, advancing their skills and expand opportunities.

Special equipment was purchased to make the course as realistic as possible, including beds, wheelchairs, and medical mannequins.

3 more CNA certification courses will be held in 2018.  Enrollment is limited. Please contact Karen St. George, Coaching Manager for details and availability. karens@communityactionduluth.org or 218-726-1665 x 213.
