    CNAs are generally regulated by the State in which you live. Each state has different requirements that you must meet before you take the exam. Most require a state approved course of something like 120 hours (some more and some less).

    For example, I am in Wisconsin. I took a Wisconsin State approved CNA course (about $300). Then I applied to my State to get permission to take the exam.

    I doubt there are many states that will take a qualification from outside the country, if any. Again it depends where you live.
