Panola College Workforce and Continuing Education offers an array of health care and wellness training opportunities this spring.
Three Certified Nurse Aide classes begin on Tuesday, Jan. 17 and continue through May 4. Cost for the program is $580. Options for class times include 10 a.m. to 12 noon on Monday through Thursday, 1-5 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and 5:15-9:15 p.m. Tuesday and Thursday. A fourth CNA class begins January 18 and runs through May 8 with classes meeting from 5:15-9:15 p.m. on Monday and Wednesday.
“We set up these flexible class times to accommodate our students because we recognize they may already have family and existing job responsibilities. By offering morning, afternoon, and evening class times, interested students should be able to find a time that works with their schedule,” said Whitney McBee, Director of Workforce and Continuing Education.
