General Contractor Continuing Education Requirements

Beginning January 1, 2020, “As a condition of license renewal, at least one qualifier or qualifying party of a licensee holding a building contractor, residential contractor, or unclassified contractor license classification shall complete, on an annual basis, eight hours of continuing education.” N.C.G.S. § 87-10.2. This requirement begins January 1 of each year, and the deadline for completion is November 30. It should be noted that there is a grace period of ninety (90) days to complete the requirement. It is vitally important to have these eight hours completed, as a failure to do so will make the contractor’s license not valid until the hours are completed by a qualifier (as well as the satisfaction of other requirements).

The Licensing Board is offering virtual continuing education classes, beginning now and operating once a week through the month of November. Even in these unprecedented times, the eight hour requirement remains in effect. Thus, these virtual classes are a convenient method through which to complete the continuing education requirement.
