NCREC Extends CE/Postlicensing Deadlines and Allows Distance Learning Options Due to COVID-19

Canopy Real Estate Institute is not currently offering in-person classes due to COVID-19 and the North Carolina Safer At Home order.

Canopy continues to offer online synchronous distance learning, including continuing education, prelicensing and postlicensing courses. Synchronous distance learning requires that the student and instructor can communicate in a real-time environment, and that student attendance can be monitored.

The NCREC has granted an automatic 90-day extension to brokers who had not completed CE by June 10, 2020. No request form is needed. Please check with the NCREC to confirm what course(s) you are required to take before enrolling in a course.  Please read this FAQ for details.

The NCREC has granted an automatic extension through September 30, 2020, to brokers who had not completed postlicensing. No request form is needed.

Schools will be able to allow students to make up prelicensing and postlicensing hours by attending another course of the same type by the same school; however, the make-up hours attended by the student must cover the same content that the student missed when that same course and its content are offered and available.

Prelicensing and postlicensing end-of-course examination requirements are temporarily waived. Please note that all course requirements must be met, including attendance and participation requirements, before a student successfully completes a course.

The NCREC has the full information on their home page, including questions and answers about the rule.

If you are a student who was enrolled in an in-person class prior to COVID-19 and the suspension of in-person classes and you still need to complete your class, please contact the Canopy office at 704-372-2984.

Students will not be required to complete courses via synchronous distance learning if they prefer to complete courses at a later date via in-person classes when they are available.

We will work with all of our students to ensure they are able to find a solution that works for them and that they are able to finish their courses.

Thank you for your patience.
