You will need to place a telephone call to your state's CNA registry to discover if you're permitted to become certified at your age. Good luck to you!

I have seen in a a few cases I've ran across that students did have to wait until they turned 18 to get their license...as crappy as that is, but your state may be different so check it out! Good luck!

but that's not me hehe
What I meant to say was welcome aboard, we'll be passing through some rough weather ahead but the temperature at our destination is a balmy 85 with sunny skies. Thank you for choosing to fly CNAirlines!
