Applications, Renewals, and Payments

New Applicants

To apply for certification, submit a completed application form and fee.  Your application will be used to determine your eligibility; therefore, it is required that application forms be filled out completely.  NDEP has six weeks after receipt of all application materials to determine eligibility for certification, at which point you will receive a determination letter in the mail.  The non-refundable application fee is $100. (NAC 459.9726)

If you are applying to be a CEM and your application is approved, you have two years to pass the CEM exam.  Once you’ve passed the exam, you will receive your certification.  If the exam isn’t passed within two years, applicants must file a new application with a new application fee. ​ The non-refundable CEM exam fee is $150.00 (NAC 459.9726).

Renewal Applicants

Your NDEP certification is valid for two years.  To remain certified, you must submit a renewal application.  THERE IS NO GRACE PERIOD. If certification lapses, you cannot legally continue to provide services in the State of Nevada. No exceptions.  Allow six weeks for renewal application review and approval (NAC 459.9726).  The non-refundable renewal fee is $100.00 (NAC 459.9728).  The renewal date is always based on the original date of the certificate.

It is the responsibility of the certification holder to apply for renewal in a timely manner.  If the certificate lapses over 90 days, you must submit a new application form (not a renewal form).  If you fail to renew your certification after one year, you will have to reapply as a new applicant, retake and pass all required exams and pay all associated fees.
