Healthy aging, healthy living.


Learn to care for those who need it most

OHAI's Certified Nurse Aide (CNA) program features a six-week enhanced curriculum designed to teach you how to care for individuals, both at home and in a health care setting. Training is divided into four modules, each enabling you to advance your caregiving skills and competency. Courses are led by nurses with geriatric and other health care experience. Taught in both classroom and home environment, students apply concepts issued in real life environments. 

After successful completion of the course candidates are eligible to proceed with state testing to include their LTCA/CNA certification as well as their HHA Home Health Aide certification. Upon passing the state exam, students will be eligible for two certifications as a Long-Term Care Aide (LTCA/CNA) and Home Health Aide (HHA). Program graduates who maintain 12 hours of continuing education per year will have their names included in OHAI's public caregiver directory.
