How to Apply - Information Session

Maine Medical Center's CNA program is an 11-week, day program, 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., Monday through Thursday. Ten (10) clinical days of the program run from 6:45 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. The course is run three times a year (September, January, March). The specifics of the program (and an
opportunity to ask questions) are provided at the Information Session.

In order to be considered for our CNA course, you will need to attend an Information Session. These sessions begin at 6:00 p.m. The next Information session will be held on June 23, 2015 at the Dana Center Auditorium. A TABE testing - a reading comprehension test – will be administered during the Information Session. Applicants to the CNA Program can take the TABE test only once during a year (a year from the date of the last TABE test taken).
