Weekday classes taught by Janice Gulick. Evening and weekend classes taught by Petra Gooding.
The Academy will offer the three 30-classroom hour mandatory NC Real Estate postlicensing courses that must be completed by newly licensed provisional brokers.
For brokers that received their license prior to January 1, 2019: 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. Due to recent rule changes, all 3 post-licensing classes must be completed no later than June 30, 2020. Failure to complete all three postlicensing courses by this time frame will result in the brokers license being placed on inactive status.
For brokers that received their license on or after January 1, 2019: all 3 post-licensing courses must be completed within 18 months of the date of licensure. Failure to do will result in the brokers license being placed on inactive status.
