Statutory Authority The Board adopts the following rules pursuant to the authority granted to the Board by 12-23-104(2)(a), C.R.S.
Description of Subjects/Issues OBJECTIVE 1: Implement HB16-1073, which was signed into law on 4/15/2016. This legislation eliminates the current Continued Competency/PDU program and replaces it with a standard 24-credit per year Continuing Education Unit (CEU) system. The CC program must be maintained until June 1, 2017 and discontinued before January 1, 2018. Immediately upon discontinuation of the CC/PDU program, and no later than January 1, 2018, the CEU program must be in place. As such, these rules also contain revisions to address the CC program until it is phased out. HB15-1073 also includes requirements related to contemporaneous review of licenses during inspections. New rule 7.3 addresses this requirement. Pre-Approved Courses: In conjunction with the integration of HB16-1073, the Electrical Board has requested the design and implementation of a pre-approval process for CEU courses. OBJECTIVE 2: Clarify sections of the Rules which have led to misunderstanding or vagueness among licensees/registrants since the last rulemaking session. OBJECTIVE 3: Eliminate Contractor ability to change the public name and thereby escape connection to prior violations. Enhance consumer ability to view licensee and contractor discipline.
