CNA classes in California

In order to comply with the requirements of the California Department of Public Health and federal regulations, CNA classes in California must contain at least 160 hours of total study (70 of which must be in-class theoretical training). The typical accredited program will take full-time students 8 to 13 weeks on average to complete. Program admission standards usually include that all applicants hold at least a high school degree or GED, and be 18 years of age or older. Select programs may have their own additional prerequisites.

To become certified after graduation, individuals must take and pass the National Nurse Aide Assessment Program (NNAAP) within 24 months of the end of their classes. If they do not successfully pass both the written/oral and skills demonstration portions of the exam within this time frame, they will be required to retake their CNA training. To become employed as a certified nursing assistant it is necessary to be listed in the California Certified Nurse Aide Registry.

There is high demand for certified nursing assistants throughout the state, so CNA classes in California are easily found everywhere from San Diego to Los Angeles to Sacramento, and all points in-between.
