Core Course for Municipal Clerks

This course is required of new Municipal Clerks before they can serve as an election official.  Once they have taken the 3-hour course, they are certified for the 2020-2021 term.  They will need to obtain another three hours of approved election training - for a total of six hours - before December 31, 2021 to recertify for the 2022-2023 term.  All Municipal Clerks are required to take and report to the Wisconsin Elections Commission six hours of election training every 2-year term  to maintain their certification.  

Core training is for:

  • New municipal clerks

  • Municipal clerks who lost their certification 

  • Certified municipal clerks (once per 2-year term)

Core training can be completed online in the Learning Center or in person. See the In-Person Training Schedule to view upcoming opportunities for in-person trainings being offered.
