Starting this thread for some of the Colorado folx - @tunnelguy @drotleff and anyone else. 

I'm happy to answer questions here about the licensing process in Colorado.

As a response to this post:





To get licensed in Colorado, you don't need to send in a full application anymore. You do need an account with DORA.

There's a tab in NCEES called Multi-State Licensure. Follow those directions, because Colorado is one of the states that will be using your NCEES record for your initial licensure.

If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to me. I got my CO license in January of this year, and I know how to get through all the steps.

Thanks for making this page. I was quite confused when Colorado first changed their requirements and we no longer had to submit experience and be "approved" for the exam. As of right now we will get results without having to contact or do anything with DORA correct? I'm sure many people will have questions once the results are released.

Correct. You will get results on your NCEES dashboard before you need to apply with DORA.

Thank you @MadamPirate PE for creating this thread, if anything else CO-related comes up, I'll be sure to post it here.
My pleasure! I know how you guys are feeling, and I want you to know that there's someone rooting for you and has been through it.

The newer NCEES system sounds much better. Had my application submitted and complete to DORA and record send from NCEES within 10 minutes of getting results.

Had my NCEES record 99% complete for a while ready to send off.

I had my application processed (and approved) through DORA in Spring of 2019, verification, experience, etc. I finally got around to taking (and passing) the exam. Just waiting for NCEES to release results to DORA, the last step in my application. Not sure I need to do anything else now that the system has change? Congrats to anyone completing this milestone!

Passed yesterday, licensed today. Well that was speedy, no more ragging allowed on DORA.

@MadamPirate PE Did you have to have your transcripts sent to NCEES for validation before transferring the record to DORA? I though I remembered doing this when I received my FE but I may have verified my transcripts only with DORA when I passed the FE.

Yes. It is a nominal cost to have your alma mater send transcripts to NCEES. Takes a couple weeks, so I had done it before I got the results for the PE exam last year.

Did any of you get your license verified through NCEES after it was all approved by DORA? If so, do you remember roughly how long it took to get verified?

@MadamPirate PE how long did it take for DORA to approve your application once submitted? I just finished my NCEES record, transmitted it to Colorado and applied to DORA. Hoping for a quick turnaround!

It was less than a week.
I just double checked, I sent it in on a Friday afternoon, I had my license and number by the following Wednesday.

That's great news! I called DORA and they said 6 weeks...glad to hear you got yours so quickly and hoping I do as well! It's like waiting for exam results all over again refreshing the page needlessly throughout the day. Thank you for the reply!
