House Bill 15-1343 which was introduced to clean up and clarify certain provisions of the manager license requirements, was signed by Governor Hickenlooper making the Bill an official law! As a quick recap, the Bill made the following changes to the original laws:
- CEO’s of management companies who do not manage communities are NOT required to become licensed;
- Managers holding a CAI accreditation of CMCA or higher, only need to take and pass the Colorado specific portion of the State exam;
- An apprentice license may be requested from DORA for community association managers that are new to the industry and do not yet have a CAM license; apprentices are required to work under the direct control and supervision of a CAM at all times; the apprentice license will be effective for one year and will not be subject to renewal;
- Managers who have not been able to pass the State exam by July 1, 2015, may apply for a provisional license from DORA that will extend the exam passage requirement through December 31, 2015.
