Is there any classes on line for CNA, and how long is the class?

I've never heard of any online CNA classes. Most (if not all) states require CNA instruction to be in-person and hands-on, along with a 75+ hour clinical rotation where you practice skills on patients in a healthcare facility.
CNA is simply not one of those roles that can be learned through online courses.

It's between 1-3 months , there are different programs all over the country(part time/full time, private or CC;etc.) You need theory and practice (hands-on) to pass your state exam and become certified. Go to CNA/MA forum CNA/MA - Nursing / Medical Assistant
and you'll get lots of useful inforamtion regarding CNA career.

Im in Australia and I did My Certificate 3 in Aged care distance ed. I was already working in the field though and had been working as an Assistant Nurse (CNA) for about 10 years when I started. I had a pile of workbooks to do and the CN at work had to sign me off on my practical stuff. I did have a "teacher" from the company I went through fly up and sit down with me if I had any questions about once a month.

i've never heard of a online CNA school... I know in some community colleges you might be able to take the classes online but then you still have to go in and do the practice labs and do a 16 hr+ (depending on the state) clinical rotation.
