Wis. Stat. § 440.08 (2), the required renewal date for the Designer of Engineering Systems credential is 01/31/even years. 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.
Candidates who are over 35 years of age AND have attained 12 or more years of experience in Wisconsin are not required to take the examination. Experience acquired in another state cannot be used to satisfy this requirement.
As a credential holder with this Board, you are required to obtain a personal registration seal in compliance with the specifications outlined in
Wis. Admin. Code § A-E 2.02. It is the credential holder's responsibility to obtain a seal, which should only include the numbers before the dash (i.e. 30666-006, 8178-005). The inner circle area of the seal must include the credential holder's name, credential number, and the city and state where the credential holder resides or is employed. This information serves as a basis for locating the credential holder and should be the same as the mailing address on file with the Board office (i.e. if the credential holder's address is Memphis, TN, then Memphis, TN must be placed on the inner circle).
The letter designation for the field or subfield is as follows:
E – Electrical
F – Fire Protection
PSS – Private Sewage Systems H – HVAC P – Plumbing
Example: If the registration number is 30666-007 in the field of electrical design, the number on the seal would be D 30666 E.
