North Carolina Contractors Continuing Education Courses

Beginning with 2021 license renewals, North Carolina licensed contractors are required to complete continuing education (CE) to renew their licenses. The CE year begins on January 1 and ends on November 30 of each year. CE may not be completed during the month of December.

To qualify for renewal, licensed individuals must complete 8 hours of Continuing Education, including a 2-hour course produced by the North Carolina Licensing Board for General Contractors. This two-hour course reviews recent changes in laws and regulations that may affect licensed contractors. The remaining 6 hours of required CE may be fulfilled by completing elective courses from Board-Approved outside providers such as Contractor Training Center.

Supporting documentation will be required if any of the above instances have occurred during the past year. Additionally, all requirements for renewal must be met, including completing mandatory Continuing Education courses.
