IS THIS THE RIGHT APPLICATION FOR ME?

BEFORE YOU SUBMIT YOUR APPLICATION

DETERMINE IF YOU MUST COMPLETE THE FOLLOWING

  • Use the Fingerprint Decision Tree to determine if you must submit fingerprints.  If you have determined that you need fingerprints, submit them electronically via our vendor FieldprintThe code that you will need when making your appointment: FPWIDPITeach
  • Preview the Conduct and Competency form.  If applicable, obtain supporting documentation for any “yes” answers to the conduct questions and scan it into a file less than 2 MB in size.

 

LOGGING IN AND FINDING YOUR LICENSES

  • If you do not already have a Web Access Management System (WAMS) ID, use the directions to create one.
  • If you have not already onboarded your license record to your WAMS ID, follow the directions to do so.
    • If your name has changed use License Lookup to determine what name is on file with DPI, as you will need that name in the onboarding.
  • Once you have onboarded use the Quick Start Directions to help determine what licenses expire this year.

Once you have completed all of the pre-application requirements login to ELO using your WAMS ID, you will be on the ELO Quick Start Menu.  Use the screenshot below to see how to choose the appropriate application on the Quick Start Menu:
