In Florida, I've seen several help wanted ads that specify CNA certificate, CPR, and "HIV Certificate" required. Anyone know the definition of "HIV Certificate"?
Ah ha! Thanks for that. My seeing the requirement on several (count that as dozens) of CNA applications can be attributed to the Internet job search engines that duplicate each other ad infinitum. Searching on HIV certificate CNA
leads to 84,000 hits, mostly from one employer.
After I knew what HIV certificate
might be, I found a similar answer amid the documents at the Florida Association of Nurse Assistants
. They confirm in-service certificates normally provided by employers can be attained by online or at-home study just like the course to which you linked.
Since it looks like this is one employer out of thousands, and not thousands of employers, one phone call should end any doubt.
