CareerEdge will continue its workforce efforts, specifically with its Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) "Bridges to Careers" training, thanks to a $25,000 grant from Truist Financial Corporation.

The CNA training, in partnership with State College of Florida Manatee-Sarasota (SCF), is unique in that the training will be offered at night to allow participants to work during the day. This affords the participant to continue to earn a paycheck during the day while learning in the evening. The class of 11 participants funded by the Truist grant meets at SCF's Lakewood Ranch campus on Tuesday and Thursday evenings and Saturday mornings through Nov. 13. Training includes CareerEdge’s life and career skills and resume assistance. The CNA graduates will be interviewed by local employers upon successful completion.
