Nevada CPE Requirements

Note: JavaScript is REQUIRED to log in and use this site.

Pacific Northwest Tax School programs meet Nevada Board of Accountancy CPE requirements. Final authority for CPE rests with the Nevada Board of Accountancy. It is the responsibility of each CPA to verify whether CPE programs and sponsors meet Nevada Board requirements. A summary of CPE requirements and website link for the Board is provided below.

Sponsor Information: The Board does not pre-approve programs. It is the licensee's responsibility for documenting the acceptability of the program and validity of the credits. Please refer to NAC 628-210 - 628.250 for information regarding acceptable course subject areas.

Renewal Period: CPA's & PA's annual permit to engage in the practice of public accounting expires every year on December 31st. Permits to practice must be renewed and postmarked by January 31st

Reporting Period: 12/31 biennially.

CPE Requirement: 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:

1997 - 30 1997 - 20
1998 - 50 1998 - 60
1999 - 30 1999 - 20

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:

1997 - 80 1997 - 150
1998 - 20 1998 - 20
1999 - 60 1999 - 60

Ethics: 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 Board will not require a specific ethics course, and the course may be taken through live seminar or self/independent study.

Self Study: Credit may be claimed for formal correspondence and self-study programs meeting all the requirements of the continuing education regulations. Credit may be claimed only for courses completed within the calendar year. The column "Dates Attended" on the back of the form should reflect the date on the completion certificate provided by the sponsor of the program.
