How are you able to offer this course online?
The state of Florida has several options available for taking your CNA license test, and one of those options is what is called the "E3 Challenger" option. This option allows students who have not taken part in a classroom course to take the test and receive their license if they pass. Our course is oriented towards helping you pass the test as an "E3 Challenger".
While our course is fully online, you will need to go to a physical testing location in the state to take your license test. There are two components to the test, a written portion and a clinical portion. We provide videos to help you prepare for the clinical portion within the course. If you are interested in learning more about the specifics of the state CNA exam, we have an article on the topic here.
Is financial aid available?
Unfortunately, we are not able to offer financial aid. It is important to realize that you don't have to pay all your CNA costs at once; that is, you can sign up for the course now, and pay for the state exam later when you are ready to take the test.
As we know some still need assistance in paying for the course, we do want to let you know that there is the option of obtaining a personal loan to pay for the course and exam. We have established a partnership with a personal loans marketplacewhere you can obtain a personal loan to help pay for the cost of your training and test. We recommend that if you choose to go this route, you obtain a loan for at least $500 to also cover the cost of the state test, which is $155, and to purchase some medical supplies. Remember that a personal loan comes with interest, and will need to be paid back regardless of whether you obtain your license or not. Alternatively, if you would like to explore CNA programs that offer financial aid, you can do so here.
It is also worth noting that when you are hired as CNA, in many cases your employer will reimburse you for the cost of the course.
How can I contact someone within your company?
Are any medical supplies required for the course?
Can I mail in a payment?
No, at this time we only accept payment via our online payment system.
Are there any hidden fees?
No, $79.99 is all you pay for 30 days of access to the course. We do offer 1 year access for an additional $20 if you so desire. We also recommend that you budget some funds for the purchase of medical supplies, but these are not required.
Am I going to receive anything by mail or is the course completely online?
Our course is completely online. All the materials you need will be accessed via our website.
Does the Course Certificate cost extra?
How does your money back guarantee work?
We offer a very simple money back guarantee - if you complete our course, pass our practice test and obtain our course certificate, then we believe you should pass the State CNA Exam. Should you fail the state test within 30 days of obtaining your course certificate, simply send us an email to [email protected] with proof your state test results and we will refund you your $79.99 - no questions asked.
The refund does not apply if you take the state test more than 30 days after obtaining your course certificate.
What if I have been arrested or have a past criminal record?
One of the requirements to take the state CNA exam in Florida is to satisfactorily pass a Level 2 background check. Any previous marks on your record will show up in this check, but do not despair if you have been arrested in the past, as this does not automatically mean that you can not take the exam. We have written a detailed article explaining whether or not you can become a CNA with a criminal background here.
