Colorado Professional Engineer – FE Exam
The Administrative Organization Act of 1968 led to the creation of the Department of Regulatory Agencies as well as the Division of Professions and Occupations, moving several of the existing boards under its purview. Most of these boards have existed for more than a century.
The Agency ensures that people who are entering these practices must be able to meet the minimum standards of competency (including passing the FE Exam), and maintain such standards during their practice. The Board makes final licensing decisions and penalize those who violate the licensing laws.
