Continuing Education Requirements

Nevada requires 80 hours of Continuing Professional Education (CPE) over a rolling two year period. The CPE is reported annually on a reporting form which includes:

Name of sponsoring program
Location of the program
Title of the program or content description
Dates attended
Number of hours of credit claimed

The Board reviews the amount of last years hours plus the year completed. The total of the hours claimed should equal a minimum of 80 hours. For example if you provided 30 hours last year, you will then owe 50 hours for the year completed for a total of 80. The following year would then require 30 hours. See example as follows:

2015 - 30 hours
2016 - 50 hours
2017 - 30 hours

A minimum of 20 hours is due in one year. For example if you provide 80 hours last year - it does not mean you are exempt for the current year. It would require a minimum of 20 hours for the year. The following year requirement would then be 60 hours. See example as follows:

2015 - 80 hours
2016 - 20 hours
2017 - 60 hours

The Board now requires Accounting and Auditing continuing education for license renewal. If you participated in any audit, review, full disclosure compilation or attestation in the past 12 months you will be required to complete 8 hours in CPE that focuses on accounting and auditing.

You will be asked on your renewal form if you have participated in this type of engagement and if so have you completed the 8 hours of CPE.

A practitioner must obtain four (4) continuing education hours in the area of professional ethics during each rolling 2-year period. Basically, the practitioner must obtain a four hour ethics course every other year.

The continuing education requirement is defined as a rolling 2-year requirement and is calculated as 2014/2015, then 2015/2016, and so forth. An example would be, if you provided 30 hours in 2014, your requirement for 2015 will be 50 hours and the requirement for 2016 will be 30 hours. If the practitioner takes an ethics course in 2015, another ethics course will not be required until 2017.

The Board will not require a specific ethics course, and the course may be taken through live seminar or self/independent study. The following is a brief list of ethics courses that are offered. You can also find a more extensive list of courses and providers by visiting the and entering ethics into the search field.
