For Reference:  Visit the NC Licensing Board for General Contractors @ for full details about CE.

General Statute 87-10.2 states that North Carolina licensed general contractors will be required to complete continuing education (CE) beginning with 2021 license renewals.

If you did not take CE during 2022 you cannot renew your license for 2023 until you do.  Your window to do so is from January 1 – February 28, 2023.  The 2-hr 2021 Mandatory course may only be taken online via the Licensing Board.  The remaining 6-hrs can be taken with us prior to the end of February.  If you complete these 8-hrs, you still need an additional 8-hrs during 2023 to renew your 2024 license.


  • CE courses begin on January 1, 2023.
  • 8 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 produced by the Board with information about changes in the laws and rules and other content applicable to general contracting.
  • The remaining 6 hours will be elective courses produced by outside providers, submitted to and approved by the Board.


  • The CE year begins January 1 and ends on November 30 annually.
  • Classes will not be offered during the month of December by any provider in the state.
