Teacher Education, Professional Development, and Licensing

2015 Legislative Changes
Changes and additions were made to licensure requirements and processes as part of the 2015 state budget (2015 Act 55).  The DPI is working to understand the changes and create new procedures to implement the legislation.  More detailed information and guidance will be posted as soon as possible. Updates will be posted on our website and the TEPDL blog (http://dpiwis-tepdl.blogspot.com/).  

  • We are now accepting applications for the Experienced-based License in Technology Education.  Please go to its pathway page for information and directions on how to apply.
  • Teachers and administrators who hold a valid license in good standing from another state, have at least one year of experience under that license, and have an offer of employment from a school in Wisconsin can now apply through our License Based on Reciprocity Pathway

Note: We can no longer accept license applications for the 2014-2015 school year.

When you submit a complete and accurate renewal application before June 30th of the year in which your license expires, Wis. Stat. 227.51 (2) provides that your existing license does not expire until the DPI completes the processing of your renewal application.
