Certification Descriptions


Here is a brief description of all the certifications offered at Quality Career Pathways.


Become a CNA (Certified Nursing Assistant) in as little as TWO WEEKS

A Certified Nursing Assistant, or CNA, helps patients or clients with healthcare needs under the supervision of a Registered Nurse (RN) or a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN). Working closely with patients in a health care facility, hospital or in their home, you’ll complete such tasks as checking vital signs, making up patient beds and assisting patients with personal tasks. In some cases, CNAs can also assist with basic medical procedures.


Become a CMA (Certified Medication Aide) in as little as ONE WEEK

A Certified Medication Aide, or CMA, administers routine oral medications and is responsible for monitoring a patient’s vitals and behavior while on medication. The CMA training program will prepare you for work in a health care facility (e.g. Assisted Living, nursing facility, hospital) or in a residential setting (e.g. in-home care).


Become a Certified Pharmacy Technician in THREE Months

Quality Career Pathways Pharmacy Technician Program is a 12-week course that combines online learning, in-class checkpoints, and onsite training. Through a partnership with CHI Health, students will have the opportunity to experience both retail and inpatient settings.

Complete your Basic Life Support (BLS) Certification at Quality

Most hospitals and clinics require their CNA and CMA employees to also have their (BLS) Basic Life Support Certification from the American Heart Association. This includes skills such as proper CPR techniques, AED instruction and how to remove airway obstructions in both adults and infants.
