The state of Utah requires everyone who wishes to work as a nursing assistant in a nursing facility, to obtain a certification first before being hired by an employer.  They do have an exception to this rule, but it requires one to obtain a certification after four months of work in the nursing facility.  If the employee cannot do so, then he or she will be removed from work and will have to undergo training and certification examination.  If you wish to work as a CNA in Utah, you will have to meet their training requirements first before applying for work. Schools need to be approved by the state and are available at many different nursing homes, hospitals, community colleges, and private vocational centers throughout the state.
