New Licensing Law
Governor Walker signed Act 143 into law on March 19, 2014. The new licensing law will take effect on April 1, 2014. The law requires any person performing electrical work in the state of Wisconsin to posses a State of Wisconsin Electrical License. There are four main electrical licenses that cover commercial and industrial work: Master's License, Journeyman License, Apprentice License, and a Registered Electrician License (referred to as a Beginner's License). State of Wisconsin Electrical License applications can be printed off at the WI Dept. of Safety and Professional Services website: http://dsps.wi.gov/Home
There are a few exceptions to the law. Anyone born prior to January 1, 1955 and who has at least 15 years of experience in the electrical industry is exempt from the licensing requirements.
