Additional Information:

Payments: All payments are non-refundable. Once the deposit is made, the student has 90 days to start the class. After 90 days the deposit will be forfeited. Balances are due upon arrival on the first day of class. Once a student is enrolled in a class, a $100 charge will be assessed if the student changes the start date of the class or does not show up for the class. If the student misses any part of the scheduled days, he or she will be charged a $100 fee before the missed time is rescheduled. If the student misses more than 2 days he or she will have to pay the full tuition charge before being put into a new class.

If tuition is being paid through an agency by means of voucher system, or by an employer, all payments must be made before a transcript or certificate of completion will be released.

Regarding tuberculosis testing: Per 902 KAR 20:205, a "Two-step TST test or two-step testing means a series of two (2) TST's administered seven (7) to twenty one (21) days apart and used for the baseline skin testing of persons who will receive serial TST's, including health care workers and residents of long term care settings, to reduce the likelihood of mistaking a boosted reaction for a new infection."

If the applicant does not have this at enrollment, it must be provided prior to the start of the first day of class. If this is not provided the first day of class, the student will not be able to start the class at that time. There will be no refund of any charges already paid.

Textbook/Workbook: All students must have the textbook/workbook package. This can be purchased at the school either on the day of enrollment or the first day of class. Both books must be new/unused copies.

Malpractice Insurance: You must have malpractice (liability) insurance to attend the program; this is included in your course fee, and covers you for the 10 days of class only.

Background Checks: If you have a felony criminal conviction on record, you will not be accepted into the program. Any monies paid will not be refunded. Background checks/abuse registry check will be done. If you have already started the program and a background check shows a felony conviction, you will not be allowed to continue in the program, and any monies paid will not be refunded. You will be obligated to adhere to any local, state or federal regulations as part of the enrollment process and during the nurse aide training program.

Adaptive Devices: In order to keep the tuition costs low, the school will be unable to provide any outside services or adaptive devices. If the student needs these services or devices, the school will try to make accommodations for the student if they provide these at their own cost.

English as a Second Language (ESL): Because all class materials are in English, and all state tests are also in English, it is strongly recommended that ESL students complete English 101 and 102 prior to enrolling in this course. ESL students are allowed to bring a hardcopy translation dictionary to class (no electronic versions.)

State Test: The cost of the state nurse aide test is separate and not included in the course fees. KCTCS will not test a nurse aide testing candidate if any monies are owed to KCTCS. Any money owed to KCTCS must be paid before a nurse aide program graduate will be tested.
