Community Association Manager Continuing Education Audits Set to Begin


January 5, 2018

Beginning in February 2018, a random selection of Community Association Managers (CAMs) will receive an e-mail notification that their Colorado continuing education compliance for the license period from July 1, 2016 to June 30, 2017 is being audited. If you receive the notification, you need to follow the instructions outlined in the e-mail and respond as quickly as possible. The Division of Real Estate conducts random education audits throughout each year to ensure that all licensees are compliant with the continuing education rules.

Community Association Managers that are part of the audit will need to submit copies of their July 1, 2016 to June 30, 2017 continuing education certificates for the required eight (8) credit hours, or proof that the licensee has successfully passed the Colorado Law portion of the CAM examination within that period (See CAM Rule B-2). Continuing education delinquencies are enforced by random audits and can be disciplined with fines, remedial coursework, and other sanctions.

If you have completed your required course credits but are unable to locate a copy of your certificate(s), you are responsible for contacting the school or provider who you took the course from for copies. 

The Division of Real Estate will not contact providers to verify compliance.

Please note that pursuant to CAM Rule B-10, licensees must retain proof of continuing education completion for four (4) years, and provide said proof to the Director of the Division of Real Estate upon request.

A complete list of licensees included in the audit will be posted on the Division of Real Estate’s Community Association Manager webpage. Licensees will be listed by license number only. If your license number APPEARS on the list and you have received the audit e-mail, you are required to comply. If your license number IS NOT on the list, you are not being audited.

ONLY LICENSEES WHO RECEIVE E-MAIL NOTIFICATION AND ARE ON THE POSTED LIST ARE BEING AUDITED. IF YOU DO NOT RECEIVE THE E-MAIL AND ARE NOT ON THE POSTED WEBSITE LIST, YOU DO NOT NEED TO COMPLY WITH AN AUDIT AT THIS TIME.

Please be advised that continuing education audits are not a one-time event, but are performed by the Division on an annual basis, and without advance notice.
