North Carolina Real Estate: Provisional Broker Post Licensing Requirements

Total Hours Required: 90
Mandatory Hours: 90
Elective Hours: 0
Renewal Cycle in Years: 1

Online Info

Once licensed, a Provisional Broker must complete three 30- hour post-licensing courses in order to terminate the "Provisional" status of their license and to avoid license inactivation and possible eventual cancellation.

Licensees will need to take at least one 30-hour Broker Post-Licensing course by the anniversary date of your license each year for the first three years of licensure.

You may take all 90 hours during your first year of licensure, you can take them in any order, but you must take all three courses without duplicating.

*You can overlap two Post-licensing courses as long as you don’t exceed 30 hours in a 7-day period.  

*Licensees must also complete their required CE courses prior to the second renewal of their license.

Online Limitations

Post License courses can only be taken onsite.  Online is not allowed.


Roster Required: yes
Roster Process: Rosters are submitted electronically every Tuesday and Friday. The roster MUST be sent within 7 days of completing the course. During high volume periods, such as near renewal deadlines, rosters will be submitted daily. **If you need or want the roster submitted earlier than the scheduled date, there is a $10 rush fee for that service.**
Roster Sent: Every 7 days
