Wisconsin Criminal History Record Request:
State law DHS 12, prohibits individuals with certain offenses from working as a caregiver. State law requires persons providing hands on care to complete a Background Disclosure Form (F-82064, Chapters 48.685 and 50.065 of Wisconsin State Statues). Failure to provide honest disclosure of past offenses and current charges can result in a $1000 fine and your denial of access to participation in the clinical portion of the course. If you have new charges against you during the course of your training, you must fully disclose those within one business day to your instructor ((DHS 12.07, 1). In addition, NTC will run a full criminal and caregiver background check on enrolled students. Background check information is considered public record and will be shared with the clinical sites (Chapter 2.3.0). You may be required to bring in documentation concerning any offense found on your record. The clinical site will decide if any convictions or charges are substantially related to the duties performed by a student caregiver (Chapter 2.1.3) and by law have the right to refuse admittance to their facility. They may request that addition information be provided. Failure to comply honestly and promptly with all the above listed requirements will result in a student being dropped from a course.
