About the Employee Registry

CBRF Employee PhotoThis public access registry of Community-Based Residental Facilities (CBRF) employees who have successfully completed any or all of the four required courses is available to providers, survey staff and other interested parties. This registry is the sole verification of classes completed on or after April 1, 2010.

Ch. DHS 83.20(1) requires that all training for Standard Precautions, Fire Safety, First Aid and Choking and Medication Administration must be approved by the Division of Quality Assurance (DQA) or their designee and must be taught by instructors approved by the department or their designee. Any training programs approved before April 1, 2009 expired on April 1, 2010. DQA has appointed the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay as their designee.

  • The Wisconsin CBRF Training Registry does not certify that a person is eligible to work in a CBRF. Employers must still assure that all employees meet the requirements listed in DHS 83. 
  • Providers must be able to demonstrate evidence that employees have been trained in the four department-approved trainings (unless the employee is exempt from the training DHS 83.24.)

To meet this requirement, we suggest that employers access the Employee Registry, print the page containing the employee’s name and training information and place a copy of the page in the employee’s file. State survey staff will only accept verification from the registry as proof that employees meet the requirement for completing department-approved training on or after April 1, 2010.
