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.
Wis. Stat. § 440.08(2), the required renewal date for the GHSS Certificate of Authorization credential is 07/31/ each even-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.
The business entity must be organized under Wisconsin state law and be in good standing in the state, or have applied for/obtained a Certificate of Authority from the Department of Financial Institutions.
