2018 Webinar Details

 Month Topic Register Description
August 2018 Creating and Managing an Effective Training Registry


In 2016 the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay was awarded a five-year contract from the Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS) to maintain the Community Based Residential Facilities (CBRF) Training Registry for the State of Wisconsin.

The CBRF Training Registry manages the publicly accessible online database of over 133,000 CBRF employees, instructors and administrators who have completed department approved training(s).  In this partnership with DHS, the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay has assumed responsibility for developing program curriculums and policies, approving instructors and monitoring training quality and consistency. 


This webinar will demonstrate how the collaborative partnership between UWGB and the Wisconsin Department of Health Services made effective changes to the training infrastructure by bringing the highest quality of training to individuals enhancing their level of care to the people they serve. 


Presented By:
Margie Reichwald Director of  
Wisconsin Community Based Residential Facility (CBRF) Training Registry for the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay
