Prelicensing Education (PE) for Producers 

As required by NRS 683A and NAC 683A, candidates must satisfactorily complete an approved course of education in the fields of insurance for which they apply before they may be licensed. Candidates must satisfactorily complete 20 hours of education per line of authority.

Persons with at least 10 years employment with an insurer in underwriting or adjusting claims or a person who has been licensed for 10 out of the last 15 years may be eligible for an exemption.

An applicant for licensing in this state who was previously licensed for the same lines of authority in another state need not complete any education or examination if the application is received within 90 days after the cancellation of his license. The applicant must provide an original Letter of Clearance to document the cancellation date.
