Create Occupational Credential Portability Program

Concerning an expansion of an individual's ability to practice an occupation in Colorado through creation of an occupational credential portability program.
2020 Regular Session
Professions & Occupations
Bill Summary

The bill:

  • Creates the occupational credential portability program that would apply to most professions and occupations regulated by the division of professions and occupations within the department of regulatory agencies;
  • Requires the director of the division and most regulatory boards and commissions within the division (regulators) to strive to reduce certification, registration, and licensure barriers for applicants; and
  • Gives regulators rule-making authority to establish an occupational credential portability program in the least burdensome way necessary to protect the public.

The bill also relocates the existing occupational credential exemption for military spouses to the new occupational credential portability program and modifies the exemption.
