CNA Classes in Georgia (GA)

The Department of Community Health (DCH) carry out the CNA training test.  They also maintain the Nurse Aide Registry for CNA certifications. The DCH works with Alliant GMC and Pearson Vue, who help with testing. The test adheres to the National Nurse Aide Assessment Program (NNAAP) standards. Candidates who pass the test are then certified.  Following that, they appear on the Georgia CNA Registry.

Requirements:  

  • Must be 18 or older
  • High school diploma or GED
  • Drug test and tuberculosis skin test
  • Background check

One can take the test without training if:

  • is an LPN or RN.
  • has taken CNA training in another state.
  • has CNA certification from another state.
  • has a lapsed CNA certification.
  • has an unexpired training verification.

Candidates who do not meet any of the above must take the training. The state-approved training programs are 85 hours. They must be completed in a 6 week time frame.  These programs include class time and hands-on training. All information about the programs is available at the Georgia Department of Health website.

Candidates:

  • must take and pass the CNA test.  This must be done within 24 months of completing training. If not, training must be taken again.
  • may take the CNA test three times.  If they do not pass, they must take the training again.
  • can work for a licensed facility as a CNA for up to 120 days. However, if they do not earn the CNA license, they will be removed from the nurse aide service.

Fees:

Training fees are between $400 and $800. If employed, the candidate’s employer pays for training. These fees do not cover the testing.  Testing fees are:

  • Skills and Written Test- $107
  • Skills and Oral in Spanish- $117
  • Skills and Oral in English- $117
  • Only Written- $25
  • Oral Spanish- $35
  • Oral English- $35
  • Only Skills- $85

Renew A Certification:

A CNA license must be renewed every 2 years.  This can happen only if a candidate has worked as a CNA for at least 8 hours every 2 years. Renewal is free, but the candidate must provide their current employer’s signature.
