How To Renew Your Real Estate License In Nevada

Persons renewing a real estate license in Nevada must take continuing education (CE) before renewing the real estate license itself.

  • First time Nevada real estate license renewals require the completion of a 30 hour live classroom course (with exceptions).
  • Subsequent renewals must complete 24 credit hours of CE courses (for licenses that expire on or before September 30, 2021) or 36 hours of CE courses (for licenses that expire on or after October 31, 2021), half of which must be live.

First Time Renewals

First-time license renewals in Nevada must be completed through live classroom courses.

If renewing for the first time, Nevada real estate licensees are required to take 30 hours of live classroom post-licensing courses within the first year of obtaining a license. The CE courses you take must include the following topics:

  • Salespersons:
    • 3 hours - Agency
    • 3 hours - Contracts
    • 3 hours - Ethics
    • 3 hours - Laws & Legislation
    • 18 hours - general courses (including up to 3 hours of personal development)
  • Brokers and Broker Salespersons:
    • 3 hours - Agency
    • 3 hours - Contracts
    • 3 hours - Ethics
    • 3 hours - Laws & Legislation
    • 3 hours - Broker Management
    • 15 hours - general courses (including up to 3 hours of personal development)

Once these live classes have been taken, a completion form is available at the Nevada Real Estate Division website.

Post-Licensing Exceptions

The post-licensing requirement does not apply to first-year licensees who:

  • Hold a real estate license from another state when obtaining the Nevada license.
  • Held a Nevada real estate license within the previous 5 years.
  • Qualified for licensure with 2 years of work experience, pursuant of subsection 4 of NRS 645.343.

If you qualify for a post-license education exception, you may optionally choose to take 24 hours of regular Nevada real estate continuing education instead.

Subsequent Renewals

Second and subsequent renewals are valid for 2 years. Continuing education must be taken every 2 years, at least half of which must be live classroom courses. The Nevada Real Estate Division has increased the credit requirements to qualify for license renewal. A licensee whose license expires on or before September 30, 2021, is required to complete 24 hours of continuing education, with a minimum of 12 hours in live instruction. A licensee whose license expires on or after October 31, 2021, is required to complete 36 hours of continuing education, with a minimum of 18 hours in live instruction.

The CE courses you take must include the following topics:

  • Salespersons:
    • 3 hours - Agency
    • 3 hours - Contracts (on or before 09/30/2021) or 6 hours - Contracts (on or after 10/31/2021)
    • 3 hours - Ethics
    • 3 hours - Laws & Legislation
    • 3 hours - Risk Reduction (on or after 10/31/2021)
