House Bill 13-1277 requires licensing for anyone who engages in certain defined activities of a “Community Association Manager” relating to the management of a common interest community (CIC). This bill was effective on January 1, 2015 and individuals needing to be licensed must do so by July 1, 2015. The Division of Real Estate continues to develop the regulatory framework for community association manager licensure and will provide notification of the development of the program through Division email blasts, quarterly newsletters, and on the Division’s website.
HB13-1277 was recently modified by the passage of HB15-1343, which modified sections of the original community association manager licensing act.
The Division of Real Estate is receiving a high volume of community association manager applications in anticipation of the July 1, licensing deadline. If the Division receives a complete and satisfactory application by close of business on June 30, a license will be issued to the applicant with an effective date of July 1, 2015.
Applicants pursuing a community association manager license must hold one of the following credentials: CMCA, AMS, PCAM, or the Division of Real Estate alternative credential and pass the state exam. The state exam is comprised of two parts; a general portion and a state specific portion designed to determine the competency of the applicant with regards to legal documents, Colorado statutes, and other core competencies.
The community association manager test for licensing is available. Testing is provided by PSI. Please review the candidate information bulletin for more information.
The Division of Real Estate has compiled a list of commonly asked questions which can be reasonably answered at this time.As this regulatory program continues to take shape, the Division will add additional FAQs to the website and disseminate information to interested parties.
