Property Manager Permit or Business Broker Permit holders must include 3 hours of continuing education specific for each permit. The CE Shop does not currently offer courses to satisfiy the requirements for either permit.

Reporting: Real estate course completions are reported to the Nevada Real Estate Division. The state requires schools to report course completions within two to three days from the course completion date. Course completions will be reported within this time frame.

Expiration Date of Course: Course expiration dates vary by course but are generally one year after order date.  Each course has an individual expiration date which is listed in your account.

Final Exams: Final exams must be passed with at least a 75% and may be taken as many times as necessary in order to pass. All Nevada final exams are timed: 1 minute per true/false question and 1.5 minutes per multiple-choice question.

Certificates: Upon completion of the course, The CE Shop will provide students with an electronic Certificate of Completion. Certificates will remain in your account for a minimum of five years, should you need additional copies. Please refer to your license renewal application to determine if you need to submit your Certificate of Completion with your license renewal request. Course completion dates are recorded using Central Standard Time. Please note that the date of your Certificate of Completion will reflect this.
