Major Change in Continuing Education Requirements for Nonresident Brokers in North Carolina

North Carolina's real estate industry is continuously evolving, with laws and regulations frequently changing.

A significant shift has recently taken place in the Continuing Education (CE) requirements for nonresident brokers in the state, and it's essential for those affected to be aware of the updates.

A Look at the Changes

Previously, nonresident brokers could utilize CE requirements from another state to certify their compliance with North Carolina's regulations. However, a recent change in the rules has put an end to this practice. Effective July 1, 2023, Rule 58A .1711 was repealed, leading to a new way nonresident brokers must approach CE requirements.

The main details of this rule change are as follows:

  • New Compliance with Rule 58A .1702: Nonresident brokers must now comply with the North Carolina CE requirements as specified in Rule 58A .1702.

  • Eight Credit Hours Requirement: All brokers must take eight credit hours of NCREC-approved real estate continuing education courses within one year prior to their license expiration.

  • Course Breakdown: This consists of four credit hours of elective courses and four hours of either the “General Update Course” or “the Broker-in-Charge Update Course” (for brokers with BIC Eligible status).

  • Online Availability: The courses, including the General Update and Broker-in-Charge Update Courses, are available online, allowing brokers to complete the North Carolina CE even when not present in the state.

  • Completion Deadline: Nonresident brokers must complete their CE requirements by June 10 of each license year.

Why is this Important?

This change underscores the importance of staying informed and up to date with the state-specific requirements, as relying on another state's CE requirements is no longer an option for nonresident brokers. Failure to comply with the new rules could lead to complications with license renewal.
