Career Technical Education

CNA students practicing skills

For information about our Career Technical Education programs, please contact the Coordinator at


For Winter 2021, MVLA Adult School has transitioned Career Technical Education courses to online distance learning platforms, including Zoom and Google Classroom. Registered students will receive information about the online platform via email prior to the start of their course or program. Students will need to download and install the Zoom application on a computer, tablet, mobile phone, or other device with an Internet connection and microphone/webcam.

NOTE: Due to the current physical closure of the MVLA Adult School, onsite fingerprinting is not available. Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) students are required to obtain Live Scan fingerprinting themselves and provide the school with a copy of the results by the first day of class. A fingerprinting form and information about Live Scan locations will be provided during orientation.
