news and events at CNA Classroom.
STARTING TIME FOR ALL MY CLASSES IS NOW 9AM FOR THE WINTER FOG SEASON.
2-28-23 cdph is ending the use of Pandemic waviers for your renewal of CNA.
As of Mar 2019, Department of Public Health suggests marking your mailing envelopes in the lower left hand corner with: "ATT: ATCS". This creats a faster and safer route to the correct department.
As of Feb 2019 Department of Health has published a new renewal form(283C) and a new Inservice/CEU record form (283A) to clarify the hours needed in each year. No signatures are required on 283a for CEU providers or nursing schools.
As of 6/2015
The DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH does not count CPR hours as CONTINUING EDUCATION UNITS. a NAC provider is the only way to get those CEUs approved when renewing CNA/HHA certificates.
Due to the demand of classes and wanting to make sure that everyone is considered and appreciated for their valuable time in renewing their certificates, we are doing everything in our ability to insure that the limited seating we have are filled with actual students.
A returning student will be charged $1.00 per hour for each no call/no show for the remainder of your current renewal period. The cancelation must be done via text to 210-995-1928 or emailed to email@example.com for the documentation of cancelation.
EXAMPLE: Mr. Santa Claus has been a student for many years and his LOCKED IN RATE is $3.00 per hour, he calls in to schedule for 1-7-17 but misses it without notifying us. He re-calls to reschedule for 1-11-17 and makes it, for the duration of his renewal period his rate will be $4.00 per hr.
Mr. Santa Claus completes the renewal and calls again on 1-7-19 for an appointment for his new renewal; his LOCKED IN RATE of $3.00 per hour is back.
Students that have attended from: 02/2014 - present
$5.00 per hour
Thank you for your continued attendance
Please do not come to our classroom
without a confirmed registration.
Our CNA classroom has expanded so much we are over-flowing our space and need to insure that there will be a seat for each of our students.
This expansion is due to the wonderful students who pass the word around about how awesome we are at providing you with continuing education to renew your CNA/HHA.
We now need to pre-register your class date to insure that there will be a seat for you.
You can register on our home page or you can call us in order to save your seats.
You must have written confirmation from us.
NOW: as of 06/2015 If a CNA takes the HHA course they will get 26 hours of CEUs at completion of the HHA course.
IF YOUR CNA/HHA CERTIFICATE HAS EXPIRED AND YOU HAVE NOT COMPLETED THE REQUIRMENTS: YOU MUST TAKE THE STATEBOARDS AGAIN. 2 years after the expiration date, if you did not take the Boards, you will have to repeat a school program.
CDPH 283 A (03/15) page 1&2: They are now requiring a
1. "SIGNATURE OF INSTRUCTOR RESPONSIBLE FOR TRAINING"
"NAME" of provider or facility
The Inservice ID # or the NAC# of the provider
So what does this mean for you? It means that if you get your classes from a DSD, you need a signature. If the source has a certificate of completion with a NAC#, no signature is needed as you are sending CDPH a copy.
THE STATE IS NOT ACCEPTING THE FOLLOWING for 2017: The same course repeated in the same year. There is nothing found in writing but 2 students reported this happening to them. BEWARE
