DORA Educational Bulletin: Plumbing Contemporaneous Reviews

The state has developed a standard procedure for conducting contemporaneous reviews to ensure consistent, timely and efficient enforcement of Colorado’s plumbing licensure and apprenticeship requirements. This procedure is pursuant to HB19-1086, which becomes effective Jan. 1, 2020.

Inspecting entities are required to develop standard procedures advising its inspectors how to conduct these reviews of plumbers and apprentices that are compliant with state plumbing licensing and apprentice ratio laws.

Streamlined Plumbing Exam Process

Beginning January 1, 2019, applicants wishing to take the Colorado Plumbing Examination should contact the exam vendor, PSI, directly. The Division of Professions and Occupations (Division) is no longer requiring applicants to be pre-approved for the exam. Applicants may register for the exam on the PSI website on or after January 1, 2019.  PSI will permit an applicant to take the Colorado Plumbing Exam after confirming the following: Applicant has completed the required PSI registration process.

Applicant pays the exam registration fee to PSI.

Applicants seeking a Colorado plumbing license must pass the Colorado Plumbing Exam before applying for licensure at the Division. After passing the examination, applicants must complete the application for licensure for the Division of Professions and Occupations and demonstrate that minimum qualifications for licensure set by Colorado law are met. The application for licensure can be found on the State Plumbing Board’s website. 

The Division of Professions and Occupations (Division) at the Department of Regulatory Agencies will no longer require applicants to be pre-approved for the Colorado Plumbing Exam. 

As licensees, educators and other key stakeholders, you have direct contact with the students and professionals who may need to know about this change. We appreciate any efforts you can make to spread the word, so students and professionals know the correct path to licensure and do not encounter unexpected delays. Questions should be directed to Renee Wunsch, Licensing Supervisor at [email protected].

Thank you for your assistance.
