Who may enter this class?

There are no prerequisite classes. Students must be at least 16 years old and have an 8th grade education. If a student has a criminal record, it is important to apply for a waiver before entering class. It is unlikely a student will be allowed to be a CNA if he/she has committed certain crimes. (See http://www.idph.state.il.us/nar/home.htm for a link to disqualifying convictions.) A criminal background check will be submitted for each student in the class.

College closed for Wednesday January 23 due to inclement weather. All Black Hawk College locations are closed and all classes canceled.
