Our free ESL/Home Health Aide class begins in April, combining Home Health Aide training with English tailored to the medical language needed for success in the program and on the job. The free training includes books, uniforms, and equipment.

In order to qualify, students need to be in our ESL classes January through March, and have to be high intermediate or advanced level ESL students. If you know individuals who are interested and who you think would qualify, please advise them to email or to text Carol (contact info below). Students need to be tested and enroll in December to start in January.

Please note that if students do a good job in the class they may then qualify to continue into the Certified Nurse Aide class that immediately follows it, with a COMPLETE SCHOLARSHIP to cover the $1500 cost of the class.

Tuesdays 10:00 AM
