CNA Plus Information Session (In-person)

Free

with Annie Sargent

Calendar Apr 10, 2023 at 12:30 pm, runs for 1 week

Ellsworth Adult & Community Education is working with several healthcare facilities in Hancock County to offer a FREE Certified Nursing Assistant Plus course. Classroom sessions are online, the lab sessions are in-person at Hancock County Technical Center in Ellsworth, and clinical sessions are at partner healthcare facilities. As a result of feedback from employers, we are complementing our CNA program with two additional standards-based work readiness and digital literacy courses. Upon successful completion of this course, passing the State CNA exam and successful acceptance to the State Registry, students will be state-certified CNAs. This course is available to adults interested in working at one of the healthcare organizations in Hancock County. The admissions process is fairly extensive.  

We are currently working on the 2023-2024 schedule for the CNA Program.  It will either start in the late September or early February, or both should sufficient funds be available.  draft schedules will be available at the information session. 

 

During this information session Annie Sargent, Career Advisor, will provide materials to review, CNA Application Packet program details, and  support in navigating the admissions process, as well as share other CNA and health occupations options.

Fly Fishing: Basic Fly Casting

$85

with Kevin Tracewski

Calendar Apr 22, 2023 at 9 am, runs for 1 week

The goal of this course is to provide students with the casting skills necessary to fish effectively on your own. This is a “hands-on” course, so your time will be spent with a fly rod in hand, working on your own casting. Most instruction will be done in small groups, but casting suggestions will also be offered on an individual basis. Students are encouraged to use their own fly rod and reel, but equipment will be available for anyone who needs it. Ideally, students would take the Introduction to Fly Fishing class as a precursor.  This is an in-person class. 

Makeup class, if needed, Sunday 04/23/23.

This course will be taught in Orono by Kevin Tracewski, a certified fly casting instructor and author of the best selling book, A Fisherman’s Guide to Maine.
