Chicago, IL (PRWEB) November 30, 2012
myCNAjobs - a growing caregiver career community for professional caregivers - announces the launch of new caregiver training modules for Certified Nursing Assistants (CNAs). The expanded training center now boasts low-cost CNA CEUs for continuing education credits.
According to federal law, CNAs must continue their training on an on-going basis and secure a set number hours of training within a one year time frame to maintain a valid state license. The training modules, powered by aQuire, offer an online solution for CNAs to undergo top-notch training from the comfort of home.
The online CEU courses consist of 23 modules to equip CNAs with powerful learning tools to learn at their own pace and assess skills along the way with built-in assessment quizzes.
“Our low lost CNA CEU training is a new alternative for CNAs to grow in their career and stay abreast the latest industry trends,” says Chelsea Cramer, Recruitment Squad Director at myCNAjobs. “The easy-to-use training modules are available 24/7 and offer a convenient alternative to other training methods,” she adds.
The modules cover a variety of topics encountered in a typical CNA job, including emergency first-aid, measuring vital signs, and cultural differences between clients. The courses are meant to update and expand the knowledge base gained from CNA school. The training modules include:
Understanding client rights
Promoting client independence
Understanding elder abuse

Each course must be completed with a pass rate of 80% and all modules can be accessed for a 30-day period for $25.
CNAs are responsible for ensuring the courses meet state specific requirements, as each state Board of Nursing has varying submission requirements.
