North Carolina Postlicensing Requirements
Beginning July 1, 2020, a provisional broker must complete all 90-hours (all three courses) of the postlicensing education program within 18 months of initial licensure to maintain an active license status.
As of July 1, 2020, a provisional broker license is required for any student enrolling in a postlicensing course.
A provisional broker’s license will be placed on inactive status if the provisional broker fails to complete postlicensing courses in the required timeframe.
The three 30-hour postlicensing courses are:
- Broker Relationships and Responsibilities (301)
- Contracts and Closing (302)
- North Carolina Law, Rules and Legal Concepts (303)
Note: Students are not required to take the three 30-hour courses in any particular order.
Online postlicensing courses are offered as online synchronous courses, meaning the classes are held in real time.
