Continuing Education Requirements for Wisconsin Dwelling Contractor Qualifiers
To renew your Dwelling Contractor Qualifier license:
- Complete 12 hours of approved continuing education
- Submit your renewal fee to the state
The state of Wisconsin requires all Dwelling Contractor Qualifiers to obtain 12 hours of continuing education every 2 years. Wisconsin Contractors Institute offers several home study and online courses to meet these requirements.
When you complete one of our approved continuing education courses, you will receive a certificate of completion for your records. We will then submit the continuing education hours directly to the state.
The state will send out a renewal notice in the mail around 1-2 months before your license expiration date. Once you have completed the continuing education, you can send in your renewal fee to the state. You can mail in your renewal, or you can renew your license online using the Department of Safety and Professional Services’ online portal, eSLA.
The renewal fee is $30.
To reinstate a Dwelling Contractor Qualifier license that has been expired more than 2 years:
- Complete initial qualifier course in dwelling construction
- Submit application, supporting documentation, and fee
Anyone who holds a license that has been expired for more than two years will need to take an Initial Qualifier course to have their license reinstated. Wisconsin Contractors Institute offers the Dwelling Contractor Qualifier Initial Course for just $99. This course is approved for the 12 hours needed to reinstate your license.
When you complete the Initial Dwelling Contractor Qualifier Course, you will receive a certificate of completion that you can submit with your application. The application for the reinstatement of your Dwelling Contractor Qualifier license can be found here.
There is a $70 fee, consisting of a $15 application fee, a $30 credential fee, and a $25 late renewal fee.
You can renew your license by mail, or you can use the state’s online system.
