Individuals who are interested in becoming a DVOMB Approved Provider need to apply first before providing any services. The DVOMB Approved Provider List identifies the providers who are eligible to receive referrals to provide evaluation, treatment, and assessment services to domestic violence offenders in Colorado.
On January 1, 2020, the process for becoming a DVOMB Approved Provider moved to a competency-based supervision process that is simple, comprehensive, and flexible to each applicant. A Domestic Violence Clinical Supervisor (DVCS) will assess applicants on clinical and administrative competencies. Those who demonstrate greater mastery of competencies based on their experience level, education, and clinical history may be able to move through the application process faster. This process empowers the DVCS to individualize the supervision for each applicant.
Applicants apply as individuals; not as partnerships, agencies, or programs. All application fees for each application are listed below and are non-refundable.
New applicants are encouraged to contact the DVOMB and attend a few trainings prior to starting this process. Other questions about the application process may be directed to email@example.com.
Every applicant is required to undergo a background check as part of the application process, which includes a separate fee of $49.50. Please note that an applicant’s prior criminal history is reviewed and considered on a case-by-case basis.
Per Colorado Revised Statute 16-11.8-103 (4)(B(III), applicants must submit one set of fingerprints for use by the Colorado Bureau of Investigation (CBI) and for transmittal to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). Fingerprints are submitted electronically. Additionally, all new applicants are required to submit fingerprints unless you already have submitted fingerprints to the Domestic Violence Management Board or to the Sex OffenderManagement Board.
There are two approved vendors providing fingerprinting services on behalf of CBI, and each vendor has multiple locations throughout Colorado. You must initiate the process through the vendor’s website. When you register you will need the following information:
