Medication Training

Wisconsin school personnel and volunteers have three options for medication training.

1. OPTION 1: Log in to the TRAIN website by clicking on TRAIN. These will be the same DPI webcasts as in #2. The advantage to using this website is that the tests are scored for you, and upon completion of the post-assessment, an automatic certificate will be placed in your My Account link in My Learning Record. The other options do not offer certificates.

  1. Either login or create an account.
  2. You can insert the Course ID number on the TRAIN home page either before and after you create an account, but you must have a TRAIN account in order to take the courses listed below through TRAIN. Simply go to Search By Course ID (blue box on right) and insert the Course ID #. When you attempt to register, it will ask you to either login or create an account.
  3. Quick TRAIN User Guide.     Webcast: Navigating TRAIN (Silverlight)     Navigating TRAIN (Classic)
  4. User Guide - Post Assessment and Certificate

2. OPTION 2: Use the links below to view the DPI webcasts for all the types of medications you will administering.

  1. View the webcasts. They can be viewed in either the original Silverlight format (viewed best in Google Chrome) or now the easy-to-use HTML version. If you are having difficulty accessing the Silverlight version, try the HTML version. The HTML version is playable on desktop computers, as well as phones and tablets.
  2. Take the tests to see if you learned the main points.
  3. If you take a test, you must print the completed test and have it scored by your school nurse or administrator.
  4. There is no certificate generated in this option.

3. OPTION 3: Use a locally-developed training program approved by the Department of Public Instruction.
 

For all three types of training, if you are giving medications other than by mouth, ear, or eye, you must prove your skills by showing them to a nurse, physician, or a skilled and willing parent picked by your school. Passing the tests on these websites is not enough to show your skill.

If you have difficulty viewing the webcasts below, go to sspw_medtrainingclassic for viewing in a non-Silverlight, standard format.
