North Carolina General Statute 87-10.2 states that NC licensed general contractors are required to complete continuing education (CE) beginning with 2021 license renewals.
- Eight hours of CE must be completed in order to renew a license by at least one qualifier for licensees in the license classifications of Building, Residential and Unclassified.
- For the Unclassified license it shall be the qualifier who has passed the Building examination.
- The 8-hour course requirement includes a mandatory 2-hour course with information about changes in the laws and rules and other content applicable to general contracting.
- The remaining 6 hours will be divided into two- and four-hour elective courses.
