CNA students are being trained at no cost at KVCC

FAIRFIELD — A dozen Maine residents are taking no-cost certified nursing assistant training at Kennebec Valley Community College.
KVCC is partnering with Mid-Maine Regional Adult Community Education in Waterville and Northern Light Health, Inland Hospital for hybrid training experience. Online didactic training began on Monday, June 8, and will end in late July at which time lab and clinical assignments will begin and run through Aug. 28.
At the end of training, successful students will have the opportunity to interview for employment with Northern Light Health.
The training is in response to Gov. Janet Mills’ Executive Order 25 FY 19/20, An Order Regarding the Maine Quality Centers Program, written as a response to COVID-19. The order was written to expedite training for critical jobs while loosening some of requirements associated with Maine Quality Centers funding.
