Description of Subjects/Issues The proposed revisions incorporate licensure provisions that implement legislation passed in SB19-242. The bill augments the regulatory process by recognizing a licensure pathway that does not impose any additional or cumbersome educational requirements upon EMS providers who wish to maintain their certification status and are not interested in becoming licensed. The proposed rules that add the licensure pathway establish that an EMS provider must necessarily obtain a bachelorís degree from an accredited college or university in specific fields to receive a license to practice in Colorado. In accordance with SB19-065, the proposed rules include a provision allowing the Department to take disciplinary action against an EMS providerís certificate or license if the provider fails to attend or complete a peer health assistance program. The revisions also incorporate the language from HB19-1166 and other non-substantive revisions.
