Now Live: Easier Online License Applications and Renewals!
LicensE, our new, online, self-guided occupational license application platform is now live! The list of licenses available via LicensE plus user guides and other resources are available on the LicensE Customer Information page. Anyone applying for an initial license for any of the credentials listed can apply at license.wi.gov.
LicensE is also available for some license renewals. The list of license renewals available via LicensE is in the chart on the LicensE Customer Information page.
We are introducing a new LicensE Application Status Lookup tool. This tool will make it easier for employers to track the application status of current and future employees, and it will help academic advisors support students during the license application process. To access the Application Status Lookup tool, individuals will need an applicant's 10-digit PAR number. An applicant may provide the number to anyone who could support their application. For more information, see our press release.
Per Wis. Stat. § 440.08 (2), the required renewal date for the Certified General Appraiser credential is 12/14/ each odd-numbered year. Should you receive your initial credential in the months leading up to this date, you are still required to renew your license by the statutorily defined date.
Before applying for licensure an applicant must complete the required experience per
Wis. Admin. Code § SPS 85.700. Once your application and experience forms are received, you will be asked to submit appraisal reports for review. These reports will be reviewed for USPAP compliance.
A Licensed Appraiser requires 1,000 hours in no less than 6 months.
A Certified Residential Appraiser requires 1,500 hours in no less than 12 months.
A Certified General Appraiser requires 3,000 hours in no less than 18 months - of which 1,500 hours must be in non-residential appraiser work.
Please see Form 2757 below for helpful information on achieving your experience hours.
