In 2013, the General Assembly enacted House Bill 13-1277, which requires licensing for anyone who engages in certain defined activities of a "community association manager" relating to the management of a common interest community. Individuals needing to be licensed must do so by July 1, 2015.
As a result of the passage of HB 15-1343, which modifies the Act by redefining the licensed activities of a community association manager, it became necessary for the Director promulgate rules pertaining to the requirements needed for licensure on an emergency basis.
The purpose of this emergency rule is to ensure compliance with §§ 12-61-1001, C.R.S., et seq., and is to effectuate the legislative directive to promulgate necessary and appropriate rules for the implementation of part 10 of Title 12, Article 61.
The specific purpose of the emergency rules is to promulgate rules pertaining to the education, testing and licensing requirements needed for licensure. Below are the 2 new rules that govern the Apprentice and Provisional licensing requirements for those seeking these license types in Colorado.
A-16) APPRENTICE APPLICATION AND LICENSE REQUIREMENTS.
AN APPLICANT FOR AN APPRENTICE LICENSE MUST SUBMIT A SET OF FINGERPRINTS FOR THE PURPOSE OF A CRIMINAL HISTORY CHECK AS PRESCRIBED IN RULE A-12 AND SUBMIT A COMPLETE LICENSE APPLICATION AS PRESCRIBED IN THESE DIRECTOR RULES.
A-17) PROVISIONAL APPLICATION AND LICENSE REQUIREMENTS.
AN APPLICANT FOR A PROVISIONAL LICENSE MUST SUBMIT A SET OF FINGERPRINTS FOR THE PURPOSE OF A CRIMINAL HISTORY CHECK AS PRESCRIBED IN RULE A-12, MUST HOLD A QUALIFYING EDUCATIONAL CREDENTIAL AS PRESCRIBED IN RULE A-3, MUST HAVE SAT FOR AND NOT SUCCESSFULLY PASSED THE REQUIRED PORTION(S) OF THE COMMUNITY ASSOCIATION MANAGER EXAMINATION AS PRESCRIBED IN RULE A-5 AND SUBMIT A COMPLETE LICENSE APPLICATION AS PRESCRIBED IN THESE DIRECTOR RULES.
