Affordable Training was established in 2001 when a deficiency was seen in the medical community. After researching options for a student, the Director felt there needed to be a school to produce qualified Nursing Assistants (CNA). Seeing a need for Home Health Aide (HHA) and Phlebotomy, we implemented classes to teach the skills necessary to improve the medical community. In 2016, the school moved its facilities to a new building in order to offer maximum educational benefits to students.
Our commitment to each student extends beyond classroom instruction. Individual attention is given to any student with concerns about progress. Special sessions may be scheduled to build knowledge and confidence. In the rare occasion a student fails the course, it is our dedication to the student to provide continuing practice on failed components. This same commitment applies to the State of Florida Certification Exam for Nursing Assistants and the Phlebotomy Exam through NHA. Prior to the exam, students are encouraged to come practice. Job openings are posted and updated as new positions become available. Letters of recommendation can be provided at the request of the student.
EDUCATIONAL PHILOSOPHY AND OBJECTIVES
The educational philosophy of Affordable Training is to encourage students to strive for excellence. Believing that any person willing to apply himself/herself to the study of health care assisting can greatly benefit from the training offered at the school. The objective is to prepare and equip the student with the basic knowledge necessary to pass both the written and hands-on portions of their applicable exam. We are dedicated to providing students with the knowledge and technical proficiency to prepare them with employable skills. We are a private technical career school, small and concerned with individual student progress. Students learn by demonstration, study, and practice in new, fresh, comfortable surroundings. Students work with current equipment, under the supervision of qualified staff. They receive personal attention in classes that are limited in size.
