Professional Licensure

The University of Wisconsin-Platteville offers several programs leading to professional licensure within the State of Wisconsin. States vary in what professions they require to be licensed and how licensure functions. Some states require and individual to graduate from an approved program. Others require an individual to meet certification requirements of a national organization.

Often, licensed professionals must complete continuing education on an annual basis.
