RNs, LPNs and CNAs with current Arizona licensure/certification are not required to take the training or complete the DCW test. In order for an RN, LPN or CNA to train DCWs however, s/he must take the tests and pass at the level required for trainers as well as meet other requirements to be a qualified trainer.
