Congratulations to the Graduating ItWorks Class

Congratulations to the Graduating ItWorks Class

Posted: 12.12.12

2012 ItWorks graduating class, funded by the Weinberg Foundation and the Kenneth S. Battye Charitable Trust

Congratulations to the graduating ItWorks class who earned their certificates this week.  This group of sixteen hardworking ladies were excited to complete their CNA/GNA training at ItWorks training facility.

ItWorks is a training certificate program that enables students to become Certified Nursing Assistants (CNAs).  Sixteen ladies completed their required classroom and clinical training and are all now Certified Nursing Assistants.  This qualifies the graduating group to assist nursing staff in a variety of settings.  They are now eligible to take the Maryland state Geriatric Nursing Assistant exam, which will allow them to provide direct care in a nursing home or other assisted living facility.

Central Scholarship helps students pursuing certificate-training programs like CNA/GNA as well as HVAC, Pharmaceutical Tech, and many more.  For more information on our vocational scholarships, please click here.  The 2012 graduating class was funded by the Weinberg Foundation and the Kenneth S. Battye Charitable Trust.
