Wisconsin Caregiver Academy

State-Approved Train-the-Trainer Sessions

The Train-the-Trainer courses have been developed and approved by the Wisconsin Department of Health Services, Bureau of Assisted Living and the Division of Quality Assurance, to offer an option for individuals without the required background to seek approval as Community-Based Residential Facilities (CBRF) instructors. These courses provide participants with the program knowledge, training skills and curriculum to offer high-quality trainings within their own organizations.

For Medication Administration, Standard Precautions and Fire Safety, the same required adult education component is offered for all participants at the same time, enabling participants to take all three programs. This portion of the course is offered on the third day of training from 8-11:30 a.m. and is included in the registration of the listed courses.

For First Aid and Choking, there is no separate adult education class. The adult education component is taught throughout the course.
