IMPORTANT NOTICE:  Before you register, you may want to read our informative guide entitled All About Registering For and Taking the Nevada Insurance Exam. Please note that taking our course DOES NOT register you for the exam. Our courses are designed ONLY as exam prep courses to assist you in passing the Nevada insurance licensing exams.

The Following Steps Will Guide You Through The Process Of Becoming Licensed In Nevada:

1)  Select an Exam Prep (Prelicensing) Course to Help You Pass the Nevada Insurance Exam

180 Licensing provides an excellent course designed to help you pass the Nevada Insurance exam. Have access to Nevada state law materials and need help pass the exam? 180 License is proven to help you get the few extra points needed to pass. Supplement our materials with your state law materials and put the odds in your favor of passing the exam.

Here is a rundown of your choices and our opinions:

  • Correspondence Courses.  Often these courses consist of a manual and perhaps some sample questions on a disk that may or may not be specific to your state’s exam. The course manuals are boring, often out-of-date, and do not effectively convey the critical points that need to be mastered by you. They do not use techniques that “teach” you the material.
  • Live Classes.  Sometimes these classes are effective and sometimes they are not – pick one and take your chances. Plus, these courses are often not located near you, and you must miss time from work or travel to take the class. When we find what we consider a good live class located in your state through our market research, we will list the class here. If you know of an exceptional class, please email us so we can confirm and list the class.
  • Online Courses with Simulated Instructors.  If you have listened to computer generated voices before, you know that they will drive you nuts after a few hours. We cannot imagine listening to a computer voice for 40 hours trying to prepare for a licensing exam.
  • Online Courses with Real Instructors.  A couple of companies have online classes with real people lecturing. While good in theory, most of these “real people” are simply talking heads in the corner of the screen that you will soon tire of.
  • A Comprehensive Interactive Course That Teaches.  You guessed it! 180 Licensing has  spent hundreds of hours creating a manual that is not only fun to read, but that is also highly authoritative and effective We have personally helped over 10,000 students pass their licensing exams using our materials and techniques. Our interactive course materials take you step by step through the critical test points – the materials are “designed to teach”. You can learn the key points at your own pace, anywhere you wish. With our exam prep materials, you do not need to second guess anything – it’s all there, in one easy package. Passing the exam cannot be made any easier or more enjoyable than with 180 Licensing!
