A licensee who is initially licensed as a provisional broker is required to complete the North Carolina Real Estate Commission's Post-Licensing Education Program within the first three years of their licensure. This program consists of three individual classes which are all 30 hours in length including a final examination. Once satisfactory completion of the courses has been made, a licensee will no longer have the "provisional" status on their license. If a licensee does not complete a minimum of one post-licensing course before the first anniversary of their license date, then the license will no longer be eligible for "active" status.
The same is true for the completion of at least two post-licensing classes by the second anniversary of his/her licensure. If, however, all three 30 hour courses have not been completed by the third anniversary date of licensure, the licensee will be canceled. The prerequisite for post-licensing courses is a North Carolina Broker's license on provisional status or a directive from the North Carolina Real Estate Commission to take the courses in order to reinstate and/or reactivate a license. All post-licensing students must present their license card or documentation of their license number from the North Carolina Real Estate Commission.
The courses may be taken in any order and commencement of the courses may happen immediately after initial licensure as a provisional broker.
The book for Post Licensing is the most current edition of the Real Estate Manual. The book is not included in the tuition price, but we will provide a book to use in the classroom. We also have books for sale.
You'll need your card on the first day of class. If you do not have this card, you can reprint it by logging into your NCREC broker or BIC online account and selecting "Print Duplicate Pocket Card" from the main account menu.
If you can't remember which Post-Licensing classes you've already taken, you can find that information when you log in to your NCREC account.
CLASS CREDIT REPORTING: Please allow up to 15 days after completing your course for the Real Estate Commission to record your credit. The Pan School of Real Estate will report your course completion to the Commission for you. The certificate is for your records.
