In 2014, MGA Homecare opened the doors to MGA Academy, our first certified nursing assistant program, in response to a growing demand for CNAs in our community and the healthcare industry as a whole. Since then, we’ve seen the number of successful graduates skyrocket from 16 to 442 – and it’s still growing. With intricate hands-on training in a medical setting and a 10:1 student to teacher ratio, MGA Academy’s goal is to award our students the skills and confidence needed to excel in the healthcare field post-certification. Indeed, our graduates boast an average 93% pass rate on state exams.
Recognizing another growing community need for CPR and First Aid classes, MGA Academy recently aligned with EdCor-Medical Education and Training as their American Heart Association Training Facility for CPR and First Aid Education. We are excited for this new partnership and to provide not only CNA courses but expanded curriculum to include community and healthcare provider CPR and First Aid courses to the entire community.

"When my son was born I was forced to quit work to stay home and care for his medical needs. This left a huge hole in our family’s income that compounded the stress the family was already going through. The MGA CNA Certification course was thoughtfully scheduled and fit well into my family’s hectic schedule. It not only provided valuable training material and information, but also provided me with tips that increased the quality of life for my son."
"Our instructors were extremely clear on the expectations of both the class and testing requirements. We gained knowledge of techniques that would distinguish ourselves as professional care takers. I am thankful for MGA having offered such an affordable, accessible, and achievable program."
