What is an Education Provider?

As of July 1, 2020, N.C.G.S. § 93A-32 dictates that a sole proprietorship or entity must be certified as an Education Provider in order to offer NC real estate Prelicensing, Postlicensing, and CE (Update and Elective) courses.

Certification requirements are set out in N.C.G.S. § 93A-34 and Commission rule 58H .0202. Licensed / approved Schools and Sponsors will automatically be transitioned to certified Education Providers on July 1st.

A list of certified Education Providers is provided on the Commission’s website. Also, you can search for courses that Providers have scheduled. Note that Prelicensing, Postlicensing, and CE Update courses must be instructed by Commission-approved instructors.
