Pre-licensing Credentials

The Division of Real Estate developed a 24 hour course content outline to be used by third party education providers; to include occupational schools, trade associations, and other exempt providers. After successful completion of the Division created 24 hour course, an applicant for licensure will have satisfied the education requirements. This course is an alternative to holding one of the credentials identified in statute and therefore, is not a requirement for anyone holding a CMCA, AMS, or PCAM credential.

Education Providers

Education providers not exempt from the Colorado Division of Private Occupational Schools (DPOS) oversight, pursuant to section 12-59-101, et seq., C.R.S., must submit an application to the Division to offer the CAM licensing credential. All education providers exempt from DPOS oversight, pursuant to section 12-59-104, C.R.S., must also submit an application to the Division for approval to offer the CAM licensing credential and include all supporting documentation set forth in section 4 of the application.

Approved Education Providers

Applicants for licensure must hold a qualifying credential pursuant to § 12-61-1003(5)(a)(I)(A),(B),(C) or (D), or § 12-61-1003(5)(D), C.R.S. or complete 24 hours of Division created instruction. The Division of Real Estate formed an educational task force charged with creating an education content outline to be used by third party education providers; to include occupational schools, trade associations, and other exempt providers. After successful completion of the Division created 24 hour course, an applicant for licensure will have satisfied the education requirements. The Division will continue to update the approved course provider list as new providers apply to offer the credential. As a reminder, the Division created course is an alternative to holding one of the credentials identified in statute and therefore, is not a requirement for anyone holding a CMCA, AMS, or PCAM credential.
