Free CNA Training in PA – Pennsylvania

Most nursing assistant certification programs in Pennsylvania are a few hundred dollars. There are some programs that will exceed $1000.  The cost of training should not deter you from starting a career as a CNA.  You should take the time to search for potential free cna training options that might be available to you. Scroll down to see our list of free training options in PA.

Contact the local unemployment office or other job placement and training offices if you are currently out of work.  They should be able to point you in the direction of any programs for which you might qualify that would cover the cost of your CNA training.  You should also look into any potential programs available to you if you are currently receiving welfare benefits.

You can apply for employer-sponsored training with any nursing care facilities that offer such options.  Many nursing care providers and some other healthcare providers offer free training for individuals who will then agree to be employed by the facility for several months or more.  This is certainly an option to consider if you want to be guaranteed employment without needing to pay for your cna training.

You can receive reimbursement for the cost of your training if you are hired by a nursing care facility after you received your certification.  Medicare and Medicaid certified facilities must offer you this benefit if they hire you in 12 months or less after you received your certification. Retain all your receipts for expenses if you are paying for certification on your own initially.

It is quite possible that you could qualify to receive assistance to pay for your nursing assistant training if you served in the armed forces.  The military offers various training and educational benefits to former military men and women.  Contact the benefits officer for your military benefits to determine if you can access financial assistance to pay for your nursing assistant training.
