Professional Engineers in Wisconsin are guided by the Wisconsin Statutes and Administrative Code, which also regulates a number of other professions and businesses. This text is an abridged version of the statutes and code that are most applicable to professional engineers.
It’s no secret that laws and rules change over time. In fact, a new continuing education provision now applies to licensed professional engineers in Wisconsin. Among other topics, this course will review the new continuing education rules and the obligations of the Wisconsin Professional Engineer to maintain licensure. The course enumerates the state-specific mandates such as the number of live training hours (which can be met with PDHengineer’s live webinars), training hours needed in the area of professional conduct and ethics, and required recordkeeping.
Additional information is provided on topics that engineers face daily in their practice, such as specific definitions of “direct supervision,” plan stamping rules, and conflict of interest. The disciplinary authority of the board is covered as is the procedure followed with an administrative warning.
Finally, there is specific guidance on the potential denial of a licensed renewal for an engineer liable for delinquent taxes.
