Online Course FAQs

All licensees, including BICs, must take an elective course. 

You can take two different elective courses

and bank one for the following year.

 

My online courses are competitively priced at $63/$67.  

The GENUP and BICUP courses are NOT available online/



Do inactive brokers have to take continuing ed?

The simple answer to this question is No. But they really better.

Since 2018, inactive brokers who do not take CE classes for more than two years will have to take 68 hours--yes, 68 hours--
of classes in order to reactivate.

So all brokers should take 8 hours of CE (the correct update course --either the GENUP or the BICUP)--
and an elective) to avoid the painful alternative.


Change in the NAR Code of Ethics Requirement

A proposed change in the NAR Code of Ethics requirement will mean that Realtors must complete at least 2.5 hours of Code of Ethics training every three years.  Should this change become effective, Realtors will need to complete the requirement by December 31, 2021 instead of 2020. 

But remember, the ethics course is a requirement only for Realtors.  Not every real estate licensee is a Realtor. If you are not a member of the National Association of Realtors, your only requirement is the appropriate Update course and any approved elective course. 

The ethics course can be taken online for FREE via the NAR website or you can take an approved four-hour ethics course and also obtain CE elective credit in NC.You can take Everyday Ethics  (print-based), Staying on the Right Path, or Scruples (video-based),online courses that count for elective credit AND NAR credit.



Speaking of Realtors....

The "UH" is silent.
It's REEL-TOR, not REEL-A-Tor.
