Bring to Class:
This course will meet on Monday, August 1 via Zoom, and Mondays, August 8, 15, 22, 29 on the Hutchinson Campus for skills labs.

Additional online coursework is required before each lab session. Students should expect to spend 10-15 hours per week doing online coursework so they don’t fall behind. The online coursework will not be accessible after the course end date.
A few days prior to the start of the class, participants will be emailed Zoom and D2L login information. 

Attendance at the Zoom and lab sessions is mandatory, as course completion is based upon number of hours. If you do not attend all lab sessions, you will not be able to successfully complete the course.

There is no textbook required for the course. We may have a few textbooks available in class, for those who would like to use a textbook.

  • Students must be comfortable using technology - minimal assistance is available
  • Internet access and a computer or tablet is required - a smartphone is not compatible with the online coursework
  • Experience working in a facility is highly recommended
  • An 8th grade reading level is required to succeed in this course
  • Registration and payment for the state NA Registry exam is separate from the course
