The NSBAIDRD Seminars for Annual Registration Renewal -
Now a Virtual Event!

 (originally scheduled for Thurs., July 16th)

Get the credits you need to maintain your license in Nevada!

These Seminars are usually just one day done twice a year; once in Reno and once in Las Vegas. Because of the uncertainty regarding nonessential travel, large group gatherings and social distancing this summer and into the fall, NSBAIDRD made the decision to change this year's seminar to a virtual event. Four separate classes will be held over four days, instead of in just one day. Attendees can register for any or all of the sessions.

CLICK HERE for more information and to register

This seminar provides registrants with all eight required CEUs for annual registration renewal in Nevada. Sessions will provide health, safety, and welfare related topics relevant to the professions of architecture, residential design, and registered interior design.
CEUs: 8 CE/HSW total (includes 4 building code related), and qualify for the 2 Code CE Requirements in the State of Nevada.

Registration Fee is $30 for each session, or the Special Price of $95.00 for all 4 sessions!

**Only those who are registered for the seminars and actually attend the seminars will receive their CE/HSWs
