Continuing Education For General Contractors

Who Needs Continuing Education?

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

  • Eight 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 with information about changes in the laws and rules and other content applicable to general contracting.
  • The remaining 6 hours will be divided into two- and four-hour elective courses.

Complete All 8 Hours In One Day

Every day we offer classes, three consecutive courses are taught consisting of a total of 8 credit hours. However, it’s up to the individual student whether he or she wants to take all eight hours in one day or split it up and only take one or two classes instead of all three.

In-Person Classes Converted To Virtual Classes

At the moment, due to the recent spikes in COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations in North Carolina, as well as the restrictions imposed pursuant to the Governor’s Executive Orders, the North Carolina Builder Institute (NCBI) has converted our in-person classes scheduled for August and September to live virtual classes. For in-person classes scheduled in October and November, we will make a decision about those classes at a later date and share it with you as soon as possible.

NCBI conducts our live virtual classes via the Zoom video conferencing tool.
