Yes, a coding course would cost more (the state has a grant program I'm looking into)

But I what I think the county is really trying to accomplish is a pool of health attendant cannon fodder.

My research reveals that while the field is expected to explode as the population ages, it features long hours, physical/emotional stress, rock-bottom pay, and sky-high turnover. I hope I'm not coming across as snobbish: A health attendant certification can be parlayed into a nursing career; and you can rest assured that if I had no other qualifications, I would be actively accepting the fact that it would be better than nothing.

I just see taking the course as a waste of the marketable skills and experience that I do have, everyone's time, and the county's money.
