Does Attorney Credits verify my completion?

Yes, under the Nevada CLE Requirements we must monitor your completion of the course. For online streaming video courses you must click on randomly inserted pop ups to confirm that you are viewing the video. For downloadable courses we have embedded numeric codes in the courses. You must write these numbers down and then enter them on our website after you complete the course to obtain your course certificate. Please note that the date you enter the codes and get the certificate is the date that will be printed on the certificate.

Does Attorney Credits report my CLE hours to the Nevada Board of Continuing Legal Education?

Yes, Attorney Credits does report your completed courses to the Nevada Board of Continuing Legal Education. We will report your course attendance within 30 days of course completion. Our automated attendance reports run on the 1st of each month and every Thursday. We report through the Nevada website normally within two business days of the report running. In addition, we also maintain a record of all your completed courses and you can access your certificates of completion at anytime from our website.

How do I report the completion of my CLE requirement at the end of my compliance period?

Nevada attorneys must submit an affirmation of attendance to the Nevada CLE Board by December 31. The affirmation of attendance must list all CLE courses completed during the year and the number of credit hours the attorney is claiming for each course. The affirmation of attendance constitutes an attorney's representation under penalty of perjury.
