The College of Continuing and Professional Education will begin offering daytime courses in May for students pursuing a certified nursing assistant or pharmacy technician certification.
The courses, which will now offered from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., will prepare students for required state exams and provide professional training, according to Elizabeth Tanner, healthcare certificate program manager. The daytime classes will also incorporate clinical sessions, allowing students to learn directly from professionals in the industry.
“The clinical sessions involve a partnership with a local healthcare facility where our students will be able to interact with certified nursing assistants and apply the skills they learned in the classroom,” Tanner said in a press release.
Upon successful completion, certified nursing assistant students will have the opportunity to work in hospitals and long-term care facilities. Pharmacy technician students can also work in hospitals or in retail settings.
Registration ends on May 1 for the pharmacy technician certification and on May 15 for the certified nursing assistant course. Students can enroll online at ccpe.kennesaw.edu, at the KSU Center registration desk, or by phone at 470-578-6765.
