NC Licensing Board Update

December 2, 2020 See updates from the NC Licensing Board for General Contractors

The qualifier for my license did not complete continuing education by November 30!


  • Continuing Education (CE) courses will not be held in December 2020. CE courses will resume in January 2021.
  • Licensees whose qualifier did not complete the CE requirement by November 30 will be ineligible to renew the 2021 license until the CE requirement is completed after January 1, 2021.
  • A $10 late fee will accrue for each month beginning January 2021 until CE is completed and the license is renewed.
  • All licenses subject to CE and previously renewed for 2020 will expire on January 1, 2021, but will remain active until March 1, 2021, at which time they will become invalid and the licensee will lose all GC rights and privileges.
  • If a license includes license classifications that are exempt from CE and the qualifier(s) on the license have not completed the required CE before March 1, 2021, to maintain the Building/Residential classification for the license, the classification on the license will be changed to reflect only the classification(s) exempt from the required CE.
  • If a qualifier has completed the required CE hours and the licensee is unable to submit the license renewal application and an error message indicates the CE has not been completed, the qualifier will need to contact the Course Provider who is responsible for uploading the credit hours and payments for the course.

NOTE: GBA will be holding a class in mid-February…watch for details coming soon!

License Renewal Update

License renewal applications are available for licensees eligible to renew their license. Licensees may access the license renewal application through their NCCLiC account.

Please note, for licenses that are subject to continuing education (CE) requirements, the license renewal cannot be completed until the entire 8-hour CE requirement has been met by at least one qualifier for the license.
