Program Description

Course Description

  • 80-84 hours in length for NA course: There are two clinical days (16 hours) scheduled at an approved clinical location following the 64 hours of skills and classroom instruction. Four to eight hours are allotted for the final testing.
  • If training is desired to take place on-site, your organization must be approved as a satellite of the college’s accredited program. If this is a consideration, we will make this request to the Dept. of Health for this to be approved.
  • Course hours can be set up as it best works between the organization(s) and the instructor availability (Days/Evenings/Weekends).
  • The course is conducted between your location or the college, an approved clinical site for the 16 hour clinicals, and the testing which takes place at a testing location within the MN State Colleges (wherever the Instructor is from).
  • Adding the Home Health Aide is an option. This is an additional 16 hours of class time.


  • The course will be invoiced at full participation = 10 students.
  • All students must pass a background check and a manteaux test, provided by employer.
  • Books and training materials will be provided for each student to use. They may keep the skills sheets, but the text books will need to be returned to be utilized for the next training group if grant dollars are allocated. There is an option to purchase the text books at cost.


  • There is an additional testing fee (approximately $150/student) that the organization/employer is responsible for paying if they wish their employees to take the state certification test. This needs to be paid at the college 24 hours in advance of the testing.
  • Advanced Minnesota will send a contract to each organization prior to training. An invoice will be sent within 30 days of the first day of training for the full balance, which is separate from the testing fees.
  • Open enrollment classes will require a minimum of 10 students and require payment at the time of registration.
