Our last Open House was such a success, that we want to do it all over again! If you weren’t able to attend that event, here’s a video highlighting what you missed and some of the things we do at CNA! Save the date for the next CNA Open House on Wednesday, Nov. 27 so you can plan a visit to a campus near you!


It has been noted that open house events of this nature at educational institutions can provide valuable insight towards a solid foundation for success in personal, academic and professional realms.

Below you will find what others have had to say about their experience...



The open house gave me an opportunity or first glimpse of what CNA had to offer and provided me with greater confidence going into my program. The open house showed me that I made the best choice in choosing CNA for post secondary and I’m excited to see what my time at the college brings!



The open house showcases the collaboration of the individual campuses and college as a whole. It allows us to celebrate our programs, accomplishments, engage alumni and serves as a reminder of the reason we are all here: our students, past and present and their success and growth while at the CNA and beyond.



I found it really exciting to see students discover what CNA had to offer for the first time, and even more rewarding to see those students here in September. We had students who thought we wouldn't have anything to offer them here in CAS this year too, just showing that CNA has something for everyone. I can't wait to see what the instructors come up with for this year's open house to make it bigger and better!



There is always a sense of pride and excitement when, as an instructor, we get to demonstrate our craft and to watch students explore; our trades, our programs, their future career.


Transportation will be provided by CNA if requested. Please click on the PDF icon to download the transportation funding form.
