    Your best bet is to call the licensing board(s) in the state where you live. This website has CNA information:

    As far as I know, juvenile records are sealed. You could check with your local legal aid office.

    I'm pretty sure juvenile records are sealed. If you ask the adult people to get a transcript for it you wont ever find it. But for me I notified the BRN and attached a paper from the juvie office just in case they looked that far back (when I stood for boards I was 22 so I thought mayeb they might look back more than 4 years). you should be ok.
