One thing you can do is look in your local newspaper. Many nursing homes these days are shorthanded, and are offering free or low cost certification classes. Usually if they offer free training, you will need to commit yourself to working at the facility for a certain amount of time- usually this is anywhere from 6 months to a year committment. Another option is to call up local nursing homes and inquire- many times they may not be currently advertising for training, but training is available to lead to certification.

i have a application in at a nurses for the course but you have to be excepted
Customer

As CNA courses you will have to go through some type of application/admission process. This most likely also includes testing of basic English and math skills. I have never heard of any courses where you are accepted immediately without any type of testing or application process.If you already have healthcare experience, then this does give you a better chance but everyone has to go through the same application process.
