The Illinois Department of Public Health’s Health Care Worker Registry website offers multiple ways to verify a CNA certification, including calling 217-785-5133 or emailing DPH.HCWR@Illinois.gov. You can also send a letter requesting CNA certification verification to the Illinois Department of Public Health, or check the status of a certification online.
Visit the Illinois Department of Public Health’s Health Care Worker Registry website (see Resources). Click on “Search the Health Care Worker Registry” near the bottom of the page.
Type in the last name, first name and middle name of the person whose certification you want to verify. Enter as much of the name as you know. The person’s last name is required. Type your best guess if you are not sure of the name’s spelling.
Click on the name of the person you believe best matches the name you want. Type in the person’s Social Security number when you click on the name to verify that you have the right person if you have it.
Click “File,” then “Print” from the menu bar of your Internet browser.
