Testing Procedures

 

Pearson Vue testing will be the only means of testing in Nevada.  This will add an additional $100 fee for the applicant.

Our current Pearson Vue procedures are:

Applications for Pearson Vue testing must be made in writing to the NV REHS Board (via mail or e-mail) and must include a check for $100 if not paid for on initial application. You must provide the Board your full name, mailing address, contact phone number, and e-mail address.

Each additional request to take the exam requires additional payment of $125 exam fee and the $100 Pearson Vue fee, for a total of $225 for each exam.

Once in receipt of an exam request, the Board will order a testing voucher for the applicant.

The applicant will be contacted by NEHA in order to schedule the exam.

The exam results will be sent to the applicant following the receipt of the official results by the Board.
