Mid-Coast School of Technology Adult Education in Rockland is accepting applications for a 200-hour Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) course, which will be held Tuesday through Thursday for nine weeks starting April 4. CNAs are in demand locally, and graduates have choices for employment in long-term care, assisted living, home care and hospitals.

Applicants must be at least 18 years of age, with a high school diploma or GED. Upon successful completion of the course and passage of the State Competency Exam, a student will be eligible to enter the health care field as a CNA under the direction of a licensed nurse. 

Those accepted for the course may also apply to Pen Bay Healthcare’s “Earn While You Learn” apprenticeship program, whose students will be sponsored, paid to attend CNA class, and will commit to working at Pen Bay long-term care facilities for 18 months after graduation.    

Deadline to apply for the CNA course is 2 p.m. on Tuesday, March 21. Enrollment is limited. For more information or an application, call 596-7752, extension 3.
