This was a good place for training and the people were friendly. First week was studying for permit. The next week class room training learning about parts on the truck and trailer and taking you out teaching how to drive the truck. But my hardest part was offset backing and 90 degree backing.

The hardest part for me was the memorizing the pieces of the truck. This training was so intense and they made sure we knew what we needed to know which was good.

I love being a CNA. Being an oral med tech was a less stressful job then being an aide. I missed the interaction with the residents. I feel like being an Aide makes me feel complete as I. Love taking care of people.

Rather boring but worth it. It will definitely allow for a better pay grade and it shows employers that you care about your present and your future. A lot of it I hadn't seen since high school but it wasn't difficult to tap into that stored information.

The reason I got certified was because the classes I was already taking included in the classes I need to take to get certified. Taking one more class got me the certification.

I was previously a medical assistant then an LPN and then got my associate degree of applied science but did not take the board of nursing program to be a RN. I enjoy helping, learning and knowing I can make a difference to those in need.
