CPE is currently working on updating all forms to include our new mailing address at 2800 E. St. Louis Avenue, Las Vegas, NV 89104.

License Evaluation Request

The Commission is the primary licensing body for postsecondary education within the state of Nevada. Licensure evaluation is required for any business that claims to provide postsecondary or pre-licensure training to individuals who are not direct employees.  Please provide as much detail as possible and submit document of any approvals/licensed issued from other entities. License evaluations require CPE to research the request prior to rendering a decision and therefore CPE can not provide a time estimate for completion. This notarized form and support documents must be submitted via mail.
