Temporary License Information

​Per Wis. Stat. § 101.985 (2)(d), if there are no Elevator Mechanics licensed under this subchapter available to provide services contracted for by an Elevator Contractor licensed under this subchapter, the Elevator Contractor may notify the Department and request the issuance of a temporary Elevator Mechanic's license to any individual who is certified by the Elevator Contractor as adequately qualified and able to perform the work of an Elevator Mechanic without direct and immediate supervision and who applies for a temporary Elevator Mechanic's license on a form prescribed by the Department.

The Department shall specify on a temporary Elevator Mechanic's license the Elevator Contractor in whose employ the licensee must remain to provide services under the temporary Elevator Mechanic's license.

The Elevator Mechanic Temporary license cannot take the place of pursuing a non-temporary credential by completing the Wisconsin Code and Statute requirements.
