WIOA Funded Tuition Assistance

The Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) was signed into law to help job seekers access employment, education, training and support services. Our four train-the-trainer courses have been approved for WIOA funding. Legible job seekers may apply at your local Job Center. Visit the Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development website to learn more about WIOA tuition assistance.

High-Quality Instructors

All of our instructors are either nurses or firefighter/EMTs. In addition, all instructors are approved by the Training Registry. Our Train-the-Trainer courses have been approved by the Wisconsin Department of Health Services, Bureau of Assisted Living, the Division of Quality Assurance and the Wisconsin Community-Based Care and Treatment Training Registry (Wisconsin Training Registry).

Approval Process for Trainers

Complete the Coursework

The courses will provide you with the program knowledge, training skills and training curriculum to enable you to provide high-quality training in a provider setting. You may choose one, two or all four core areas:

  • Medication Administration
  • Standard Precautions
  • Fire Safety
  • First Aid & Choking

Apply for State Approval

Next, you will need to submit an application to the Wisconsin Community-Based Care and Treatment Training Registry for each core area.


After your application(s) and payment are received and approved by the registry, you will receive notification via email and will be added as an approved instructor to the instructor registry. You may begin scheduling training dates after receiving your approval.

Renew as an Instructor

An instructor approval status is good for a maximum of two years. You may submit your renewal application up to three months prior to your expiration date.

Any instructor who expired more than a year ago must re-apply as a new instructor. Some instructors will require continuing education hours to renew.
