Effective September 1, 2020:
A Work Permit/Background Check, Sheriff’s Card or Clearance Memorandum (now referred to as the ‘Comprehensive Background Check’ as of 2022) and a current TB test has always been required, in addition to documentation of completion of all of the initial training requirements, for new members applying to The Nevada Registry for the first time (when they do not possess formal education or degrees that would place them at Levels 2 or higher on the Career Ladder).
Because the Work Permit/Background Check/Sheriff’s Card/Clearance Memorandum and TB test are not training-related, The Nevada Registry will discontinue requiring those two items as part of the application process. What this means is that as of September 1, 2020, a new member application will now be considered complete when the individual submits documentation for ALL of the required training courses, regardless of whether they opt to also include a copy of their Work Permit card or TB test. Though no longer required, The Nevada Registry will happily digitally archive Work Permit cards and TB tests for members who continue to supply this information.
As always, ALL members are encouraged to also submit documentation verifying their completion of ECE courses and degrees obtained in order to be placed at the level commensurate with their education. The Nevada Registry will continue to place individuals at the highest level of the Career Ladder supported by the documentation submitted.
