Lauren Larson, Division Director

The Division of Professions and Occupations provides consumer protection through its regulation of 345,000 licensees within more than 50 professions, occupations, and entities in the State of Colorado. The Division’s boards and programs have been created by the Colorado Legislature to ensure a minimal level of competence of licensees and to protect the public.

The boards and programs in the Division share a common set of goals:

  • Identify and license qualified practitioners, facilities, programs, and equipment.
  • Conduct investigations and inspections to ensure compliance with generally accepted standards of practice, conduct, or safety.
  • Restrict, suspend, or revoke licenses when those generally accepted standards are not met.
  • Communicate to effectively inform, verify, educate, and advise.
  • Administer the regulatory programs efficiently.
