Deserving Caregivers Receive the Opportunity of a Lifetime – Thanks ABC CNA Training Center!

Hi everyone, Patti here to share some exciting news with you! ABC CNA Training Center awarded their second CNA Scholarship for their June enrollment period. The myCNAjobs Scholarship Team is thrilled to welcome Terrell H. from Queens, NY and Audrey S. from New York, NY to our program. Terrell H. applied not too long before his outstanding application was noticed by our Scholarship Team. After speaking to Terrell and realizing his eagerness to change his life I knew we had to award him the scholarship. Terrell has always had an interest in the healthcare field. Ever since high school he has been taking caregiver courses that will ultimately lead him to his dream of being a registered nurse. Terrell is also a youth, health and wellbeing advocate in his community. Not only is healthcare a big part of his life but he is also very passionate about it. Hearing that he received this scholarship, Terrell was overjoyed and ready to finally have a place to begin his career in healthcare. Audrey S. impressed our Scholarship Team with her story. Audrey has had extensive training in the caregiver field, she took care of her mother for about five years during which she realized that caregiving was her calling. She learned how to administer shots and properly make her mother as comfortable as possible. She hopes to one day be able to make a difference in people’s lives along with bringing pride to ABC Training Center. Her ability to be patient and caring made her the perfect candidate for this scholarship. Audrey has expressed her gratitude for this opportunity to both ABC Training Center and MyCNAjobs. Both Terrell and Audrey will be starting the CNA training program on June 27th! The staff at ABC Training Center is very excited to have two more caregivers join their program. Our team here at myCNAjobs believes it is extremely rewarding to see such passionate individuals finally fulfilling their dreams and seeing them make an impact on the healthcare community. We cannot wait to see how many lives Terrell and Audrey can change and how great they will do in this program. Once they finish training we will also help them find a job. How exciting right? Stay tuned for more on Terrell’s and Audrey’s great stories and how classes are going for them! Check out other myCNAjobs Scholarship Stories!  


myCNAjobs is pleased to announce ABC Training Center will extend multiple scholarships in 2016 via the CNA Scholarship Fund, launched earlier this year. Located in Bronx, New York, ABC Training Center is no rookie when it comes to providing exceptional adult education programs. For over 43 years, ABC Training has provided adult education services to the New York City community and is licensed by the State of New York. Last summer, ABC Training Center was awarded the 2015 Best Businesses of Bronx Award in the Adult Education category by the Best Business of Bronx Award Program. This award was created to bring recognition to great local businesses within the community. The certified nurse aides program provides hands-on learning for those looking to build a career as a CNA. ABC Training Center will cover the full cost of tuition for two local community members during their next enrollment period as a way to give back to the local community. “Providing this opportunity offers a unique way for us to give back to both community members seeking a new career path, but also expand the pool of available workers for our local community as we’re in desperate need of a more qualified staff,” comments Dave Herwitz, Program Director of ABC Training Center. The myCNAjobs nursing scholarship fund was established to help bring awareness to caregiving as a profession. “ABC Training Center joins us on our mission to entice more caregivers to choose caregiving as a job and get the best possible caregivers into the lives of seniors nationwide,” says Brandi Kurtyka, CEO of Chicago-based myCNAjobs. “We’re thrilled to partner with a CNA program in the Bronx with a such a seasoned track record.”

MetroDavid Herwitz

Instructor David Herwitz on how to make a living as a bartender.

David Herwitz is one of the most popular, experienced and knowledgeable bartending instructors in New York City.  For more than 20 years, he earned a living exclusively behind the bar, everywhere from local pubs to two-star restaurants. Today, he is the director of a bartender training program at ABC Training Center in the Bronx.

Why is bartending a great skill to have? 

“Bartending is a job that’s always readily available, even in an economy like this one. Bartenders are transient — a lot of actors, singers and writers. So the jobs turn over constantly; the need is great, and a good bartender can work as much as he or she wants. And the money’s good. For me, I made more than I did in the white-collar sector.”

How do you know if this is right for you?

“Having an excellent short term memory is helpful. You want to have a certain amount of coordination with your feet and hands. But, remember, what a lot of people think is speed is actually good pre-shift preparation–the bartender got there early, made sure everything was just where he would need it.  It’s preparation and repetition. But if you have a confident personality, the technical part can be learned. I see schools where students are taught to race through an arbitrary number of drink preparations in a specific time period with a stopwatch, which is ridiculous.  You can’t teach a bartender to be fast by doing that.  The right way to teach speed is to teach the correct procedures, and have the student do them the right way–over and over and over again.”

What should a student look for in a bartenders training program?

“A lot of schools will posture and kind of insinuate that they’re selling you a license. In New York State there’s no such thing as a license to be a bartender. Bars are licensed, not bartenders. A lot of the schools are locked into a pre-approved, Department of Education curriculum. I mean, according to that, you’ve got to teach how to make a Grasshopper. Nobody orders that these days.  There are schools out there that teach a bizarre, “bartender school” style of bartending that is instantly recognizable to people that hire bartenders, and generally disdained by them.  My school is licensed by the Education Department too–but I wrote a MODERN, PRACTICAL curriculum and got it approved.  It’s very detailed and thorough.   So you should make sure you’re going to get experience in specific situations, not just recipes.  You don’t want a school where the teacher simply recites out-dated drink recipes,the students write them down, and that’s it.  There’s a LOT more to the job than that!  The program should prepare students to be flexible  and confident in every situation.  I make sure to get students behind a real bar, serving real alcohol, for real money, to real customers.”

Fast, low-cost job training is as easy as ABC!
