State Required Continuing Education for GCs
Important Continuing Education Information!
NC legislation now requires North Carolina licensed general contractors to complete 8 hours of continuing education prior to renewing their license each year. (One qualifier for Building or Residential licenses and the qualifier who passed the Building exam for Unclassified.)
The 8-hour course requirement will include a mandatory 2-hour course produced by the NC Licensing Board and will include information about changes in the laws and rules and other content applicable to general contracting. The remaining 6 hours will be elective courses submitted to and approved by the Board. (These elective courses also qualify towards earning NCBI designations).
The CE year begins January 1 and ends on November 30 annually with no classes being offered during the month of December.

NC Builder Institute
The NCBI serves as the educational arm of the state association and oversees all of its educational programs. The Institute brings together the industry’s leading experts to create a dynamic and exciting learning environment.
Earn a Professional Designation
The NCBI offers classes that are not only relevant to your industry but help distinguish you from the competition by allowing you to earn a professional designation. A designation shows that you CARE about being the best and you take your profession seriously. Once a designation is earned it will appear on your GC license and on the Licensing Board's website.
Is education over-rated? Depends. In a tech savvy world customers do a lot more investigating and comparing before they make a decision. If YOU were spending thousands (or hundreds of thousands) of dollars on a project would you trust your investment to just anyone?
The more you know the more valuable you become!
