To all Brother’s and Sister’s
Wisconsin Dept of Safety and Professional Services is looking at April 1 as a firm date. Electrician are reguired to have a license by April 1 otherwise they cannot work. Wisconsin Dept of Safety and Professional Services think they can handle the volume of applications that should be submitted in the next few days to ensure everyone who should be licensed does receive the credential in time. And they're telling us that many applications have been processed already.
Please don't count on this current status to change. Other groups have raised concerns too but Wisconsin Dept of Safety and Professional Services seems to think it will be fine. So please get your applications in ASAP.
Also, the DSPS website still refers to "beginner electrician" and hasn't been changed yet to "registered electrician". DSPS knows this but cannot change on the website until the bill is signed into law. I would encourage anyone in that category to still fill out that form ASAP and expect that the correct credential will be received. Any question call DSPS 608-261-8467
