Effective September 1, 2024, the bill makes changes to Colorado's
occupational credential portability program (program) relating to the
spouses and dependents of military members, including:

program, allowing gold star military spouses and
dependents of military members who are licensed, certified,
registered, or enrolled in a profession or occupation
(credentialed) in good standing in another state or United
States territory (current state) to be credentialed in
Colorado by endorsement from the current state to practice
the same profession or occupation in Colorado;
  • Allowing an applicant to be credentialed under the program
if the applicant committed an act that would have been
grounds for discipline in this state, but for which the
applicant remains in good standing in the current state
because the act is not grounds for discipline in the current
  • Removing the 3-year limitation and nonrenewal provision
for a military spouse's credential and allowing military
spouses, gold star military spouses, and military dependents
to obtain a renewable 6-year credential while in Colorado;

credentials issued to military spouses, gold star military
spouses, and military dependents; and
