STATE OF COLORADO <br />BOARD OF EXAMINERS OF WATER WELL CONSTRUCTION AND PUMP INSTALLATION CONTRACTORS <br />Division of Water Resources <br />1313 Sherman Street, Room 818 <br />Denver, CO 80203 <br />Phone (303) 866-3581 <br />FAX (303) 866-3589 BOARD POLICY NO. 2008-1 <br /> <br />Revoked, Scroll for additional info <br />No Continuing Education Accreditation <br />for Post -Attendance Reauests <br />Bill Ritter. Jr. <br />Governor <br />Harris D. Sherman <br />Executive Director, DNR <br />Dick Wolfe, P.E. <br />Secretary <br />License renewal or maintenance includes a statutory requirement for the fulfillment of eight (8) <br />hours continuing education annually and submittal of a Certificate of Completion. The Board <br />adopted Rules and Regulations for Administration of Licensing, Financial Responsibility, <br />Continuing Education and Remedial Action (BOE Rules), 2 CCR 402-14 (2004), in part, to <br />assist in development of the continuing education program. Rule 8 of the BOE Rules explains <br />the continuing education requirement and accreditation process. Board Policy No. 2004-01, <br />page 2, number 5 anticipated that the continuing education accreditation committee (CE <br />committee) would develop "a process for recommending approval of continuing education hours <br />for post attendance requests". The Board has determined that it will not approve any post - <br />attendance requests for accreditation as outlined in this policy. <br />DISCUSSION• <br />Section 37-91-105(7), C.R.S. (2007), requires that each licensee "complete eight hours of <br />continuing education training as approved by the Board every year in order to maintain or renew <br />a license." To provide consistency in evaluating each contractor's fulfillment of the continuing <br />education requirement, the Board has determined that continuing education course accreditation <br />will not be awarded for post attendance requests. The Board reasons that only prior approval of <br />courses for continuing education should be granted so that the program can be noticed and <br />posted allowing other contractors to have an equal opportunity to attend, compliance with Rule <br />8.2.5 (sponsor documentation and maintenance of attendance records) can be demonstrated, and <br />the Board can function more efficiently in evaluating continuing education accreditation requests <br />for license renewal and maintenance. <br />TIMOTHY L.
