What is OE?

Open Enrollment (OE) distinguishes participants who are self-paying. OE is offered for nearly all SERTC courses.

What city should I fly into?

  • If you fly into Denver (DIA), you will need to rent a car to get to Pueblo. Pueblo is approximately two and one half hours from DIA.
  • If you fly into Colorado Springs (COS), you can either rent a car or call the “Shuttle Service of Southern Colorado” at 877-545-9435. Pueblo is approximately one hour from COS.
  • If you fly into Pueblo (PUB), you can take a cab to the hotel, or rent a car. Pueblo is limited by the number of flights in and out. There is only one airline that serves Pueblo. That is Great Lakes Airlines and they serve Pueblo through DIA twice daily, in the morning and in the evening.
