A person who is licensed as an insurance producer for health insurance and who sells, solicits or negotiates long-term care insurance must successfully complete an initial course of training consisting of at least 8 hours.

Each 24-month period thereafter, the producer must successfully complete an ongoing course of training consisting of at least 4 hours.

This state has issued a notice reminding licensees who sell flood insurance of their requirement to comply with the minimum 3 hours of training requirements established by FEMA and the National Flood Insurance Program.

Course Repetition

Course repetition is not permitted within the compliance/renewal period.

Exam Rules

Online certification exams are closed book. Course materials are not available while the exam is in progress. The final exam must be passed with a score of 70% or higher to receive CE credit. If the exam is not passed on the first attempt, students have an unlimited number of retakes.

Proctor/Monitor Requirements

Online exams must be monitored by a supervisor, training officer, another professional, or librarian, but cannot be the licensee’s relative or subordinate. The monitor must complete the online Declaration of Compliance.
 

If the licensee launches the exam without a monitor present, he/she will be disqualified from receiving CE credit for the course. Completion of the Declaration of Compliance acknowledges understanding and adherence to the specific requirements outlined by the State Department of Insurance. The Declaration of Compliance is electronically transmitted to Kaplan upon completion of the exam and may be audited for compliance purposes.

Period Requirements

Nevada resident licensees must complete their CE requirements by the first day of the month following the license issue date, triennially.

Carryover Criteria Requirements

Carryover of CE hours is not permitted.

Reporting Requirements

Report within 30 days of completion. Need Agent’s Nevada license number or NPN.

State Reporting Fees

The Nevada Department of Insurance requires a course reporting fee of $1.00 per credit hour (online, self-study and classroom courses). This state reporting fee will be automatically charged to you (on the last credit card used in your account) each time you complete an online, self-study, or classroom course.

Instructor Credit

Individuals acting as instructors for continuing education courses receive the same amount of CE credit as his or her students receive for taking the class.
