      I think getting free CNA training is a great option, what I always try to point out though is that CNA training which you get for free has to be paid back in some other way. In other words, you will usually be required to pay it back in the form of employment for a certain period of time. It's essential that people realize this before they signup for any extended CNA training which they cannot afford to pay back.
