What courses does Anderson continuing education provide for CNAs?

I work at a Skilled Nursing Facility in California. The California Department of Public Health stipulates that as a nursing assistant in the state, I have to take 48 hours of CNA continuing education courses every two years to renew my certificate. Therefore, I would like to take at least 12 hours of continuing education courses for nurses at Anderson education. I am particularly interested in courses that are popular and relevant to our current time. Is there anyone with information on up-to-date courses offered by Anderson continuing education?
