A student enrolled in the Broker Pre-Licensing Course is required to attend 80% of all scheduled course hours. Any student who does not maintain the necessary attendance will be deemed as having not completed the course and will receive no credit. Once a student has missed 20% or more of a course, the student is NOT ELIGIBLE to take the end of course examination. For the Weekday classes, 20% amounts to about 3 ½ classes. For the Weekend classes, 20% amounts to 2 days.
The student must complete the course with a minimum grade of 80% on the final exam. Mid-term tests and take home exams will be given for practice throughout the course. These tests are for additional practice only and do not count towards the final course grade. Students who pass the final exam may not review the examination. A student who fails the exam may review his/her examination immediately following completion of the exam in the presence of the class instructor. A maximum of 30 minutes will be allowed for the review. The student will be given the opportunity to review the questions they answered incorrectly by comparing their responses to the correct response. The student will only be allowed to have the test package and answer sheet during the review. The student will not be allowed to take notes during the review. One retake of the final exam will be scheduled by the instructor within 10 days of the original final exam date for those students who fail the initial exam and who have scored at least a 70% or above.
To present Broker Post-Licensing Courses needed for a newly licensed “provisional” broker to remove the “provisional” status of such license.
Possession of a current North Carolina broker license on “provisional” status is a prerequisite for enrollment in the Broker Post-Licensing courses. Prospective Broker Post-Licensing course students must present evidence of meeting this prerequisite at the time of enrollment (e.g. current pocket card).
(1) A student may enroll for a Broker Post-Licensing course if the student is completing the course in order to qualify for a reinstatement of his/her license.
(2) A student may enroll for a Broker Post-Licensing course if the student is completing the course pursuant to a disciplinary order issued by the Commission.
** In either event, the student should provide supporting documentation at the time of enrollment.
NOTE: Schools are not permitted to enroll an individual in a Post-Licensing course while the individual is taking another Post-Licensing course at the same school or a different school if such enrollment would result in the individual attending class for more than 21 hours in any given seven-day period. A provisional broker is subject to withdrawal or denial of Post-Licensing education credit by the Real Estate Commission if he/she enrolls concurrently in Post-Licensing classes (at the same or a different school) that result in the provisional broker participating in Post-Licensing course sessions for more than 21 classroom hours in any given seven-day period.

Payments for all classes may be made by check, money order, credit card or debit card only.

After attending the second class, no refund will be made; however, the student may enroll in a future course for $100.00 as long as the student enrolls for the course retake within 6 months from the original scheduled completion date of initial course for which he/she was enrolled.
The 90-classroom-hour Post-Licensing education program consists of three 30-classroom-hour courses prescribed by the Commission which may be taken in any sequence. A provisional broker must satisfactorily complete at least one of the 30-hour courses during each of the first three years following the date of his or her initial licensure as a broker in order to retain his or her eligibility to actively engage in real estate brokerage. Upon completion of all three courses by a provisional broker, the provisional status of the broker’s license will be automatically terminated by the Commission. The primary objective of each course is to provide instruction at a level beyond that provided in Pre-Licensing courses on topics deemed to be of special importance to licensees. Each Broker Post-Licensing Course includes a final exam. The courses are:

The student is allowed ONE opportunity within 3 days of the last scheduled class day to make up any missed course exam or to retake any FAILED course exam without repeating the course. A grade of less than 75% on the end of course exam (initial or retake) will result in the student not passing the course. Any student who does not pass the course shall be given the opportunity to retake the entire course at a cost of $100 as long as the student enrolls for the course retake within 6 months from the originally scheduled completion date of the initial course for which he/she was enrolled. Students who pass the Post-Licensing exam may not review examination. A student who fails the exam may review his/her examination immediately following completion of the exam in the presence of the class instructor.
