The Licensure Process
Licensure is the process by which an agency of state government or other jurisdiction
grants permission to individuals to engage in the practice of, and prohibits all others
from legally practicing, a particular profession, vocation, or occupation. By ensuring
a minimum level of competence, the licensure process protects the general public.
The state regulatory agency is responsible for establishing the acceptable level of safe
practice and for determining whether an individual meets that standard.
The state of Colorado has retained the services of Pearson VUE to develop and
administer its insurance licensing examination program. Pearson VUE is a leading
provider of assessment services to regulatory agencies and national associations.
