Low Cost CNA Training Metro Detroit

  1. 0
    Hello All,

    I'm looking into getting CNA training in the metro Detroit area. I know about the Red Cross which is $1000, but I remember finding a class that was like $600, but of course can't remember the info. Does anyone know of any other classes classes around the $600 range?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thank you so much. Just called and left them a message. Do you know the pass/fail rate of their students. Did you get training there? How was the instructors? How was the facility?

    lol...I am in class so I am able to respong quickly....I was going to go to this place but I got accepted into LPN School but my co worker went there and she loved it. She said the area that it is in isn't the best but she said the teachers are fantastic. The course work is not too hard but you do have to apply yourself and be willing to study. I do not know the pass or fail rate either but my coworker said that only 2 people dropped out ouf her class. Right now my coworker works in a nursing home that is ran by one of the "larger hospitals" in dearborn. She is making 11.00 an hour and also she is about to start working for a home health care facility. I do not know too much about the home health care gig....but she is very exctied about it. I will work with her Sunday so I will get info on that. I like the fact that they do not demand payment upfront. They allow you to go on a payment plan...which would have worked around my work schedual perfectly.

    Most nursing homes and hospitals will reimburse for the cost of the training. I took mine through Red Cross (highly recommended) and they informed us that almost all work places will pay you back but you must work there for about a year to get the full amount.
    Don't worry about the cost as much as finding a quality place to take the CNA. I loved the Red Cross.

    I have been contemplating on taking the CNA program this summer at the American Red Cross. Can I ask which American Red Cross did you take your CNA training? I would really appreciate it a lot. And were you able to find employment as a CNA after you completed their program?

    Hi I took the class through the Palms building near the Fox theatre in Detroit. For me, the location was not bad and I liked the instructors. I think you have to sign up through the Detroit Red Cross and then you choose a location. Yes it's pretty difficult to find a good job - I was hoping for a job at a hospital but its all but impossible to get one there without experience or knowing someone. So you are likely going to have to start at long-term care facility - you can work for 4 months without having you certification. You will probably learn more at a LTC facility anyhow and it's rewarding work. Good luck!!
