  • It can be difficult to find work because potential employers usually want experiance, not just proof of completing a training program.

  • CNA, DA and MA are all short term but you can renew them after so many years. I have to renew my MA every 2 years and it was the same when I had my CNA

  • You can't go wrong with a CNA and/or Medication Aide certification, lots of jobs out there for those. Also, phlebotomy is a short course, I think six weeks. Try your local community college for such classes.

  • Teacher's Aide Maybe... That may be a hard job to find though...Most systems are cutting back.
