ELO Application Directions for New IHE Representatives for PDP Teams

State Budget Licensure Changes

Important NoticeEducators who hold a Professional or Master Educator license that was supposed to expire on June 30, 2018, DO NOT NEED TO APPLY to renew their license with credits or a PDP.  The state budget has removed the expiration dates from these licenses, and we are working to have license lookup reflect that.

Please visit the Latest Licensing News blog for information on the state budget's impact on licensure. All available information has been posted to the Latest Licensing News blog. Please Note: the first post relating to the new license rules was written September 22nd.

STEP 1: Create a WAMS (Wisconsin Access Management System) ID if you do not already have one.

  • It is recommended that applicants use a personal email address when creating an ELO account. This email address must be available and accessible by you as it will be the primary communication method from the licensing system.
  • Please follow the instructions on the screen when setting up a WAMS account. There are links to the WAMS Help page and the WAMS FAQ page. For assistance in setting up WAMS account, contact Help Wisconsin Support
  • Guide to creating a WAMS ID


STEP 2: If you have ever held a license or permit issued by the DPI, successfully "onboard" into the ELO system by connecting your WAMS account to an existing account - Onboarding Instructions


STEP 3: Prepare Required Documentation

Required files must be scanned into a PDF files that are less than 2 MB in size. Save the files so that they are readily available to upload into ELO

  • A letter from the Dean or Director of your educator preparation program that designates you as a representative for your institution.
