Important: Even if you are granted a CE extension, you must still renew your North Carolina license during the license renewal period (May 15-June 30, 2020).
The North Carolina Real Estate Commission (NCREC) Commissioners met Wednesday, March 18 to address how to provide instruction during this time of concern and precaution for COVID-19, and approved a set of temporary emergency procedures for real estate schools and course sponsors that will be effective on March 26, 2020.
The Commission will be granting licensees an extension of time to complete postlicensing and continuing education courses. More information regarding temporary rule changes can be found here .
While all in-person classes have been cancelled through the end of April, CRCBR is working diligently to resume classes as soon as possible, and expect to have synchronous distance learning classes available for the GENUP, BICUP, and some continuing education electives as soon as March 26, 2020. We will keep you informed as these classes become available.
You have the following options to complete your Update and/or Elective:
- Option 1: March 26 through June 10, 2020, participate in scheduled Updates and Electives using synchronous distance learning. We will advise you of the dates and times for these and, if you had previously registered for an in-person class, you have the option to transfer to one of these courses at no additional charge. Dates and times for these courses will be available soon.
- Option 2: Students will not be required to complete a course via synchronous distance learning if they prefer to complete courses at a later date when in-person classes resume. If you have previously registered for an in-person course, your credit will be applied to an in-person class after April 30 (when the NCREC suspension of in-person classes is expected to end). The May and June schedule will be available soon.
Additionally, online elective courses are available now. Click here for more information.
