Graduation in architecture from a school or college approved by the examining board as of satisfactory standing shall be considered as equivalent to 5 years of experience, and the completion satisfactory to the examining board of each year of work in architecture in such school or college without graduation shall be considered equivalent to one year of experience.  Graduation in a course other than architecture from a school or college approved by the examining board as of satisfactory standing shall be considered as equivalent to not more than 4 years of experience.

Wis. Stat. § 443.035 provides the registration requirements for landscape architects.  The examining board shall register as a landscape architect an individual who submits to the department evidence satisfactory to the examining board of any of the following:

  • That he or she has a bachelor’s degree in landscape architecture, or a masters degree in landscape architecture, from a curriculum approved by the examining board and has at least 2 years of practical experience in landscape architecture of a character satisfactory to the examining board.

Wis. Stat. § 443.09 states that in considering the qualifications of an applicant as an architect, landscape architect or professional engineer, responsible charge of architectural, landscape architectural or engineering teaching may be construed as experience.  The section further requires that no person who has an arrest or conviction record is eligible for registration as an architect, a landscape architect or a professional engineer, or certification as an engineer-in-training.  However, this requirement is subject to Wis. Stat. § 111.321, Wis. Stat. § 111.322 and Wis. Stat. § 111.335.

Further, written examinations shall be required of every applicant for certification as engineer-in-training.

(2) The examining board may reprimand a firm, partnership or corporation holding a certificate of authorization issued under this chapter or may limit, suspend or revoke such a certificate if any of the agents, employees or officers of the firm, partnership or corporation has committed any act or has been guilty of any conduct which would authorize a reprimand or a limitation, suspension or revocation of the certificate of registration of a registrant or the certificate of record of an engineer-in-training under this chapter, unless the firm, partnership or corporation submits evidence satisfactory to the examining board that the agent, employee or officer is not now practicing or offering to practice architecture or professional engineering in its behalf.

(3) Any person may make charges that any registrant, holder of a certificate of record as engineer-in-training or corporate holder of a certificate of authorization has committed an act for which a reprimand or limitation, suspension or revocation of registration is authorized under sub. (1) Such charges shall be in writing, shall be sworn to by the person making them and shall be submitted to the examining board. The examining board may, on its own motion, make such charges. All charges, unless dismissed by the examining board as unfounded or trivial, shall be heard by the appropriate section of the examining board, subject to the rules promulgated under Wis. Stat. §  440.03 (1)

(6) The examining board, for reasons the appropriate section of the examining board considers sufficient, may reissue a certificate of registration or a certificate of record to any person, or a certificate of authorization to any firm, partnership or corporation, whose certificate has been revoked, except for a certificate revoked under Wis. Stat. § 440.12, if 3 members of the section vote in favor of such reissuance. Subject to the rules of the examining board, the examining board may, upon payment of the required fee, issue a new certificate of registration, certificate of record or certificate of authorization, to replace any certificate that is revoked, lost, destroyed or mutilated.
