Project Connect: Adult Education Programs
Certified Nursing Aide
Prepare for a rewarding career as a Certified Nursing Aide (CNA). CNAs assist with basic care in hospitals and long-term care facilities. They’re often the main caregivers, helping with daily activities and sometimes dispensing medications.
Qualified Medication Aide
Build on your skills as a CNA and become certified to assist with medication and monitoring. As a Qualified Medical Aide (QMA), you’ll work under a licensed nurse’s supervision to do even more for patients.
High School Equivalency Program
On average, workers with a high school diploma earn over $8,000 more per year than those without a diploma. And a high school education is an important first step before entering a two- or four-year college program. Start your next chapter now by earning your High School Equivalency (HSE) credential.
Our HSE prep program prepares adult learners for the GED® examination to obtain an Indiana High School Equivalency Diploma. The course covers all subject areas of the test: math, reading, writing, science and social studies.
Classes are offered virtually or in person.
Your Project Connect instructor will assess your skills and help you study. You’ll also get access to virtual instruction, academic monitoring, childcare and financial aid for testing fees.
