Renewing/Updating Your Career Development File

Membership with The Nevada Registry is renewed on an annual basis prior to the date that your membership certificate expires. You will receive a series of email* reminders from The Nevada Registry to renew your membership online via your Online Portal prior to and when your certificate expires. For this reason, it is imperative that a current email address is always on file with the Registry. If your email address changes between renewal dates, please contact our office to update your account.

Renewing is easy!
Membership renewal is completed quickly and easily online from within your Online Portal. You will be eligible to renew your membership 45 days prior to your certificate expiration date. Simply click on the link that will be visible in your account to review the information currently on file and update what has changed since the last time you applied/renewed (address, job, etc.,). You may also upload any additional training certificates of completion, college transcripts showing completion of additional ECE courses/completion of your degree, and/or copies of any newly acquired licenses, teaching certificates or endorsements as part of the online renewal process. This information is important because it helps document the professional development progress you have made throughout the year and could result in a change in your Career Ladder level. Remember, as a courtesy, the Registry warehouses all of your training records in a central location should you ever need to replace lost or misplaced documentation, but more importantly, the more you provide to us with each renewal, the more complete your professional development profile will be.

There is no fee to renew your membership on time with The Nevada Registry (i.e., within 45 days of your certificate expiration date and 30 days beyond). However, a $25 reinstatement fee is imposed on renewal forms submitted 30 or more days after your certificate has expired.

Please note that if you work in a licensed child care setting, you are in compliance with Child Care Licensing only when your certificate is current so be sure to update your file before your certificate expires! You will receive an email notification after your online renewal has been reviewed and processed by The Nevada Registry. It is at this point that your new certificate can be accessed from within your Online Portal and remains valid for one year.

* The Nevada Registry uses an electronic renewal reminder notification process. To ensure that you receive important information, future renewal reminders, updates, etc. from The Nevada Registry, it is imperative that an accurate email address be on file at all times. Note: Occasionally, emails sent from The Nevada Registry are returned as undeliverable and/or considered spam. If you have an email address on file but you do not receive this reminder in the future, it is possible that your message has been returned or was blocked on your end. Please check your junk mail and/or spam folders. If you do not receive a renewal reminder notice 4-6 weeks prior to when your certificate expires, contact our office at (775) 327-0670 or (800) 259-1906 so we may help resolve the issue.
