Question from Anonymous
Hi, I'm trying to become a CNA, in order to do that I have to take medical terminology. Will I get a certificate when the class is over to prove that I completed the medical terminology class?
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi there! The Medical Terminology classes are not college accredited however after completing the Medical Terminology classes the student may request an "Award of Completion" for just $10.00. Please keep in mind it is not a certificate. It would all depend on the college or institute you are currently taking the CNA classes with if they would accept an "Award of Completion" as proof. Hope this helps!
