PAL CNA Training Academy opened its doors in 2015 serving Arkansas residents by providing quality CNA training. The school prides itself in offering stackable credentials to encourage students along a career pathway, or up a career ladder. These stackable credentials are appropriate for adults who have had some college, or no college at all and who want to quickly access training in a career field. It's also advantageous for college graduates who may need to supplement their degree or who may need to pick up a specific new skill as their job responsibilities grow, or change.
We discovered there was a shortage of personal care aides who work in home care or assisted living. We have a 40-hour Personal Care Aide course in order to serve the business owners and help with staffing shortages. When students successfully complete the PCA course, they are eligible for a $100.00 scholarship toward the CNA program.
Two years ago, the school added the Phlebotomy and EKG Technician courses. As part of the stackable credentials program, students who complete their CNA, Phlebotomy, EKG, and CPR courses are eligible for the Patient Care Technician certification through the National Healthcare Association. Students will have their fees paid for the PCT study guides and certification exam which is a $235.00 value.
We have listened to the needs of the community and have added to our curriculum since we opened in 2015. We strive to provide excellent training and services and continue to meet the needs of the students business owners.
