Yes, the Five-Year Non-Renewable License Based on Retirement Eligibility qualifies as a Professional Educator license. The recently passed state budget (2017 Wisconsin Act 59) creates a new kind of license called a Lifetime License. Anyone, who holds a current Professional Educator or Master Educator license, will automatically have their license converted to a lifetime license. Educators will not need to make a request or pay a fee for license to be changed to a Lifetime License.
