Licensed Professions and Occupations

Our library receives many questions about how to search for an occupational license.  If you are licensed in an occupation and need to check the status of your license, or if you are doing business with someone and want to verify that they are licensed, you can find this information at the Colorado Department of Regulatory Agencies (DORA)’s license database.  Simply select the profession from the drop-down menu and, to narrow the search, fill in terms such as name or city in the search boxes.  You will get a list with basic information including name, license number, status (active, expired, etc.), city, state, and zip.  For more information, click on the “detail” link next to the person’s name.  This will pull up information such as dates of licensing and any disciplinary actions received.

You can find detailed information on each profession and its requirements at DORA’s Licensed Professions and Businesses page.  To renew a license, click here.
