First Aid and Choking Bridge Course

First Aid and Choking Train-the-Trainer Bridge Course

UW-Green Bay’s Wisconsin Caregiver Academy is offering a Bridge Course for those trainers who are state-approved instructors of the American Red Cross First Aid/CPR/AED training. This Train-the-Trainer Bridge Course will allow trainers to teach our new state-approved First Aid and Choking curriculum, which is independent from the American Red Cross.


Benefits of being trained in our new state-approved curriculum:

  • Cost savings to your company — Instructors will no longer have to double register participants with the ARC and the Wisconsin CBRF Training Registry, reducing cost and workload. This will save up to $27.00 per participant.
  • Instructors will not have to renew their instructor status with two agencies, only the CBRF Registry. Instructors can use the Bridge Course as their continuing education hours for First Aid and Choking.
  • The curriculum is CBRF specific which means no longer having to teach unrelated components such as pediatrics or wilderness survival.


Half-Day Course, $499:

Includes continental breakfast, instruction and materials

Saturday: 8 a.m.-1 p.m.


Special hotel pricing is available for those attending the training. Please call and mention UW-Green Bay to get the special rate.
