The RCAW Respite Care Certificate Program (RCCP) is designed for people who are interested in providing respite care to individuals with varying disabilities and ages across the lifespan. Learners are able to work at their own pace to complete the ten required online courses.
Upon completion of the Respite Care Certificate Program, learners 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.
This FREE workshop will provide you with the information and building blocks needed to start a respite program in your community. You will have the opportunity to provide and receive feedback from others starting programs in their communities, allowing you to build a support system throughout the state of Wisconsin. This is a six-week course. The first, third, and fifth weeks will consist of online modules for you to complete on your own time. The second, fourth, and sixth weeks will be a virtual, face-to-face meeting at a scheduled time.
