    My training was about the same time frame (120 hours) but I went through TN Tech. It was about half the price of the Red Cross program.

    Thanks! Our county's technical school does have the training for a lot less but their classes are offered are from 6-9 PM two days/week for 12 weeks. I teach full-time and to come home and have to go to class two days a week for 3 hours is a bit much.
    The Red Cross is in the summer and it's 9 - 3PM for 4 weeks which is perfect.
    I'm hoping to work part-time during my summers as a CNA. It's something I've always wanted to do and considerably different from teaching.
