RESPITE CARE PROVIDER TRAINING (RCPT)
The Respite Care Provider Training (RCPT) is designed for people interested in providing respite care to individuals with varying disabilities and ages across the lifespan. It is an entry-level training program suitable for individuals who have never provided respite before and individuals who are currently respite providers. Learners can work at their own pace to complete the ten required online courses, stopping and starting as needed. There is no cost for the courses in this program.
Upon completing the RCAW Respite Care Provider Training, learners will earn a certificate of completion of 7 hours. They will also be offered the opportunity to be added to the Wisconsin Respite Care Registry, available to primary caregivers to search for Respite Care Providers in their community.
This FREE registry connects those needing respite care with respite care providers. Direct care professionals or providers can sign up to be found as a respite care provider and find meaningful caregiver jobs, and primary caregivers can search this database for in-home or agency-based respite care providers that most closely meets their needs.
