CNA Training Program Schedule

The NTSOC CNA School is currently not accepting new applications and has temporarily suspended enrollment for new students. Please check this site periodically to receive updated information.

In both the online and traditional school, lessons are in three areas –theory, labs, and clinicals. The State requirement is at least 75 hours of total hours, including 16 hours of clinicals. NTSOC has a superior reputation for producing CNAs. Both programs have slightly over 80 hours of instruction. The class formats are structured differently. The curriculum and instructors are the same for both programs.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, only the NTSOC Online School is currently available until further notice.
