Here's what you need to know:
The Colorado Division of Real Estate has stated that no Continuing Education for CAM licensees is required to have been completed until the cycle ending on June 30th, 2017. You are encouraged to take and complete your CAM CE starting after the date of July 1st, 2016, as the current cycle does not have a CE requirement.
Do I need to take the CAM CE coursework?
Yes – but not yet. VanEd has the 8 hours of continuing education that you need to qualify for the Colorado CAM license renewal and CE requirements, but the CE requirements don’t start until the cycle beginning on July 1st, 2016. You will need to complete your 8 hours of CE prior to June 30th of 2017 in order to meet Colorado’s renewal requirements. Beginning with the July 1st, 2017 renewal, all CAM licensees in Colorado will be required to complete 8 hours of CE every year in order to renew. View our online CAM CE courses.
Do you still need to sit for the PSI test?
No. Once you have your license you should not need to retake the state exam ever again! Yay!
Am I required to complete CE if I renew July 1st, 2016?
No. The Division of Real Estate stated that the first required CE cycle will begin for all licensees starting in 2017. There is no CE required to renew your CAM license in 2016. This means that you are not required to have completed your 8 hours of CAM CE until June 30th, 2017 – even if you are already licensed. At the time of your renewal on July 1st, 2017, however, you will be required to be able to provide proof of having completed the 8 hours of CE required by the state of Colorado. You can confirm this either on the application, which can be found on the DORA website, or by contacting the Division of Real Estate.
For additional information visit DORA's website or give them a call at 303.894.2166.

Pursuant to section 12-61-1000(3), C.R.S., the Director of the Division of Real estate will establish, by rule, the continuing education requirements for licensed community association managers.
