Sherman <br />Executive Director, DNR <br />Hal D. Simpson, P.E. <br />Secretary <br />INTRODUCTION: <br />License renewal/continuation 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 />anticipates that licensed contractors may earn continuing education credit for professional <br />activities, including participation as a speaker at conferences offering continuing education <br />credit. <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 it is necessary to establish criteria for the <br />continuing education credit awarded for preparing and presenting a continuing education course. <br />POLICY: <br />The following criteria are established for the continuing education credit to be awarded as a <br />professional activity in preparing and presenting a continuing education course: <br />Continuing education credit requests for presentations must be submitted to the Board no <br />less than 30 days in advance of any presentation whether the course is accredited or not. <br />Each qualified contractor (Rule 8.2.4) presenting a continuing education course shall <br />qualify for the same number of continuing education credits the Board determines <br />eligible for the program or course (Rule 8.2.7). If the course is a part of a larger <br />conference, the credit hours will be determined by the length of the presentation. <br />The qualified contractor is eligible for continuing education credit only one time the <br />course is presented each year. <br />TIMOTHY L.
