If you'll miss the June 30 deadline you can still re-certify by paying a modest late fee
The 2016 - 2018 Provider License Renewal application for the current two-year biennium is quickly coming to a close as it concludes on June 30. If you do not renew your EMT or First Responder license by then with the State of Wisconsin EMS Office, you can no longer work on an ambulance, function as an EMS provider or provide patient care.
A person acting or advertising as an EMT or First Responder without a license or certificate issued by the department or without appropriate credentialing may be subject to department action under sub ch. V or s.256.15 (11) (c), (d), or(f), Stats., as applicable."
Any application received after June 30, will be considered a late renewal under DHS 110.09(1): "An individual may renew a license or certificate that has been expired for less than 6 months by applying to the department for license or certificate renewal as specified under s.DHS 110.07 and submitting the late renewal fee ($50.00)specified under s.DHS 110.16 (1).
