Request an Exemption

To request an exemption for an existing school or a potential school, type the website address: ColoradoETPL.org directly in your web browser and click the New Provider/School/User: Get Started button. Choose "01-Private Occupational School - exempt" as the Provider Org Type and click Search. For step-by-step instructions, please review this user guide.

Once received, Division personnel will review the information provided in order to determine whether the school or education provider falls under the jurisdiction of DPOS, or if further investigation and follow-up are necessary to make a determination. The school or education provider will be notified of the Division determination or request for further information.

Submit a Complaint

If you would like to file a complaint about an approved Colorado private occupational school, type the website address: ColoradoETPL.org directly in your web browser and click "Submit a DPOS Complaint" to get started.

IMPORTANT!! PLEASE READ BEFORE YOU FILE:  If you have a complaint (that is not about a diploma mill), please be advised that according to statute, the Division of Private Occupational Schools may only accept an electronically filed complaint from an individual who was denied enrollment; is a current student; or is a former student of a private occupational school that is approved to operate in Colorado. 

If you are a former student, the Division may only process a complaint provided not more than two (2) calendar years have passed since you  last attended the school that is the subject of the complaint.  Under very limited circumstances, a third-party, who can show a monetary interest, in a matter involving a current or former student of a private occupational school (i.e. parent or legal guardian) may also be able to file a complaint.

Report an Unauthorized School

To report a school or education provider that may be illegally operating in the state of Colorado without the required authorization, type the website address: ColoradoETPL.org directly in your web browser and click "Submit a DPOS Complaint" to get started.
