Frequently Asked Questions
Do I have to have a high school diploma or GED?
A high school diploma is recommended, but not required. However, you do need to be at least 16 years of age for the NA-1 training program course (if under 18 a legal guardian’s signature is required).
Do I have to attend an information session before enrolling?
It is a policy of Caregiver Training Institute that all students must complete a free, no-obligation online information session prior to enrolling in classes in the NA-1, CNA-2 and MA programs.
Can I reserve a spot in a particular class?
Yes. Before you can register and reserve a spot in a specific class that has openings, you must:
- complete an information session;
- complete, sign, date and submit all registration packet paperwork /enrollment eligibility paperwork to the school business office;
- select a program class/clinical schedule; and
- pay your tuition. A payment for a minimum of 50% of the NA-1, CNA-2 and MA program tuition reserves a student’s seat in class. Online NA-1 students must pay their tuition in full.
What is the deadline for enrolling in a class?
Registration into a class is closed two (2) business days prior to the first day of class.
What forms of ID are acceptable?
It is the policy of Caregiver Training Institute that all students must present a current government issued, signature-bearing, photo ID with your legal name and birth date for identity verification by the first day of class (i.e. – state driver’s license, state ID, or passport)
When can I contact the school business office to make a payment or ask a question?
School office normal business hours are 7:30 am to 5:00 pm Monday through Friday (The office is closed for lunch from 1 pm to 2 pm.) Before and after business hours and over weekends you can leave a voicemail message at 503-257-0117 or contact the school via email message at firstname.lastname@example.org.
When do I sign up for my Board Test?
Oregon State Board of Nursing regulations allow us up to 10 business days following your last day of clincals to process certificates. We make every effort to have certificates ready sooner than that, but during our busier times of the year it may take the full 10 business days to process completion paperwork. Students will be notified by email when their certificates are ready to pick up at the office. We can help you sign up for your state board test when you pick up your certificate
