What our students say...

This program is the best thing I’ve ever done. Lonnie has such an extensive knowledge and is so good at teaching it. She cares about the success of her students and made learning enjoyable. Starting a new career after so many years was scary, but this program has make me feel confident in this choice.

-- Shannon B.
Lonnie was amazing. She takes the time to make you feel comfortable. She is very wise and funny. MMCC’s Technical Education Center has very roomy classrooms and the staff will do anything to help. At first, I thought the price for the CAN training was high, but now I know it’s because you get so much training and learn so much. I would highly recommend CNA class with Lonnie at Mid in Harrison.

-- Tabitha S.
I had been out of school for sometime, and decided to join the CNA class. I was terrified walking in there, but in the first 15 minutes, I felt like I belonged there. Our instructor, Lonnie, made everyday exciting and fun. I am so happy I decided to go back to school.
