NC Real Estate Broker Postlicensing Courses

The Academy will offer the three 30-classroom hour mandatory NC Real Estate postlicensing courses that must be completed by newly licensed provisional brokers. A minimum of one course must be completed prior to the first anniversary date of licensure in order to retain eligibility for “active” status. The same is true for the completion of a second course prior to the second anniversary date of licensure. If a provisional broker fails to complete all three postlicensing courses within three years following the date of his or her initial licensure, his or her license shall be placed on inactive status.

In order to activate the license, the provisional broker shall demonstrate completion of all three postlicensing courses within the previous three years, which will terminate the provisional status of the broker’s license, and shall satisfy the continuing education requirements for license activation.
