    Answered . If the DWAI was your first alcohol related riving offense, it is not a misdemeanor. It is a violation (non criminal charge). The DWI would be a misdemeanor.

    In my experience, this will not stop you from acquiring your CNA license. Speak to the agency assisting you in being licensed about this. Also, get an alcohol evaluation from a CASAC and follow through with any recommended treatment.

    Good luck to you.
