Look at your pocket renewal card. If it has a “PB9” designation (salesperson license converted to provisional broker April 1, 2006) and you do not complete all ninety hours of your postlicensing education (three courses) by April 1, 2009, your license will be cancelled.
If it has a “PB” designation (licensed as provisional broker on or after April 1, 2006), you must complete at least one (thirty-hour) postlicensing course each year to keep your license active and all three courses within three years to avoid cancellation.
For example, if your license was issued on August 1, 2007 (look at your license certificate), to keep it active you must have completed your first prelicensing course by August 1, 2008, your second by August 1, 2009, and the third by August 1, 2010.
If you do not complete all three courses by August 1, 2010, your license will be cancelled. To avoid inactivation and cancellation of your license, go to the Commission’s website, www.ncrec.state.nc.us for information and a list of schools approved by the Commission to offer postlicensing courses.
