REAL ESTATE BROKER
POST LICENSING EDUCATION
As a newly licensed North Carolina Real Estate Broker, your license will be held in “Provisional Status” until you complete an additional 90 hours of education within three years of obtaining your North Carolina real estate Broker License. The Broker Post-licensing Courses each consist of 30 hours of instruction and these courses may be taken in any sequence.
Purpose of the Postlicensing Program:
The primary objective of Postlicensing Education Program is to provide instruction at a level beyond that provided in the Broker Prelicensing Course on topics deemed to be of special importance to licensees.
Per Commission Rule 58A .1902: Provisional Brokers must complete, within three (3) years following initial licensure “a postlicensing education program consisting of ninety (90) hours of classroom instruction in subjects determined by the Commission” [G.S.93A-4(a)1]. The program consists of three 30-hour courses, at least one of which must be completed in each of the first three (3) years following initial licensure in order to retain eligibility to actively engage in real estate brokerage.
The 90-hour Postlicensing Education Program consists of three 30-hour courses prescribed by the Commission which may be taken in any sequence. However, the Commission recommends the following course number sequence (301, 302, & 303), as course materials were developed with that sequence in mind. When a provisional broker has timely completed all three (3) courses, the provisional status of the broker’s license will be automatically terminated by the Commission.
