19 Apr Free CNA Classes in Florida
Would you like to get your CNA training for free in Florida? There are a couple of options. If you are currently at least 16 years old and no more than 24, and you have proof that you don’t have the financial means to go to school and get a certificate or a degree, you can apply in either Homestead or Jacksonville Job Corps. Aside from the free tuition, you can also get an allowance (subject to state tax) and free accommodation. The agency also supports you once you graduate through career placement services and counseling.
Contrary to popular belief, Red Cross usually doesn’t provide CNA classes for free, though there are some times when they do. One of the best things about joining the training is you also learn how to work seamlessly with the other CNAs or health care providers through teambuilding.
You can also approach your respective local council such as PCOC (Polk County Opportunity Council) or browse for any industry-related scholarship. High school students and graduates can apply for the Florida Bright Futures Scholarship Program. Veterans can get good financial assistance from the VA and then use the money to fund CNA classes.
