As of June 15, 2020

The Nevada Division of Insurance (“Division”) is pleased to announce the following available services:

Testing & Fingerprinting (updated):

Pearson VUE Owned sites in Reno, Las Vegas and Third-Party test center sites are now open at 50% capacity. Fingerprinting is now available through Pearson VUE by appointment only. For testing information please visit https://home.pearsonvue.com/nv/insurance. For scheduling an appointment to be fingerprinted please contact IdentoGo at (866) 761-8069 or visit their website at https://www.identogo.com/. Should Pearson Vue not be available, please contact one of the listed vendors provided in the Division’s Licensing FAQ sheet

Classroom courses are encouraged to change to virtual classroom/webinars. Please contact Pearson VUE via email at ce_providers@person.com.

Providers: Regardless of the presentation method used to deliver the material for CE credits, the providers are required to monitor the attendance and completion of the courses. 

The Division is waiving the exam proctoring requirement for self-study continuing education classes only; however, the licensee is still required to take the exam at the end of the course if the exam is part of the coursework.   

Licensee Updates:

Renewals & Continuing Education: 

In an effort to support the Governor’s Directive 009; licensing operations have not been reduced due to the state of emergency and to protect all of Nevada citizens; the Licensing Section continues to offer electronic means to provide virtual continuing education for all licensees to meet their statutory requirements in maintaining their license.

The Division strongly encourages licensees to complete continuing education requirements by the due date on their license.

Nevada Revised Statutes require licensees to complete their continuing education requirements before their due date on their license.

Licensees are given a three year license; in which continuing education must be completed.

Licensees are also sent an electronic reminder 90-days prior to their due date reminding them not to wait till the last minute to do their continuing education. 

Virtual classes remain available. 

Applications are processed in the order they are received.
