North Carolina Real Estate License: Provisional Broker Postlicensing Requirements

Once licensed, a provisional broker must complete all Postlicensing courses within the 18-month period immediately following the date of initial licensure.

The Postlicensing education program is divided into three 30-hour Postlicensing courses:
301 Broker Relationships and Responsibilities
302 Contracts and Closing
303 License Law, Commission Rules, and Legal Concepts

Expiration Date of Course: All Post courses must be completed within 180 days from registration.

Postlicensing courses may be taken in any sequence. However, the Commission recommends that you follow the course number sequence (301, 302, & 303), as course materials were developed with that sequence in mind.

All provisional brokers must satisfy the Postlicensing education requirement of 90 classroom hours of Postlicensing education to be eligible for active broker license status. Postlicensing education is a one-time requirement and should not be confused with continuing education (CE).

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

Roster Process: We will report education to the board within 7 business days of completion. Rosters are submitted electronically.
