Office of Respiratory Therapy Licensure


Leanne R. Duffy, Program Director

Consumer Protection is our Mission.

On behalf of the Director of the Division of Professions and Occupations, the Colorado Office of Respiratory Therapy Licensure (“Office”) regulates individual licensed respiratory therapists in the state of Colorado. Office activities include licensing respiratory therapists, investigating complaints, and enforcing disciplinary actions against those who violate the Respiratory Therapists Practice Act and Director’s Rules and Regulations. The mission of the Office is to maintain the profession’s integrity and protect its consumers. The Office works in conjunction with the National Board of Respiratory Care (NBRC).

We Changed Our Name!

The Division is now called the Division of Professions and Occupations, effective August 8, 2012. To help our consumers and licensees more readily locate and utilize our services, the legislature passed House Bill 12-1055 during the 2012 legislative session. Please note, the Division of Professions and Occupations will still be housed within the Department of Regulatory Agencies (DORA). Services the Division currently offers will remain the same.


Legislation passed during the Legislative Session impacts the Division of Professions and Occupations. Please review the program's Laws, Rules and Policies web page to learn of any changes due to legislation.
