The Respite Care Provider Training (RCPT) is a series of free courses for anyone interested in providing respite care as a career, a part-time job, or even a volunteer activity to individuals with varying disabilities and ages. Learners can work at their own pace to complete the ten required online courses, stopping and starting as needed.
When you have finished the RCPT, you’ll receive a certificate of completion for seven hours. You will 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.

Effective October 2023: RCAW’s mission is to promote, support, and expand quality statewide respite care across the lifespan. Continued waitlists for Bringing Respite to Your Community (BRYC) prevented us from implementing our mission. For that reason, RCAW has modified the format of this workshop. Instead of virtual face-to-face training, BRYC is now entirely online. This format allows open enrollment and provides support and education to the participants.
