Welcome to the North Carolina Real Estate Commission

The broker-in-charge update course is reserved exclusively for current BIC's or those brokers seeking to maintain BIC Eligibility. Any broker NOT falling into either of these two categories WILL NOT be granted continuing education credit. Any broker uncertain of his/her "Eligibility" should login at and obtain a Broker-In-Charge Certificate of Eligibility. If this certificate is not available to you, you do not fall into either of the two categories and will not receive continuing education credit for the class.

All real estate licenses issued by the Commission expire on June 30. A recent law change requires that beginning this year, all broker licenses must be renewed online at including payment of the $45 renewal fee. A broker who does not have the ability to renew online may renew by calling the Commission's office between 8:30 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday (919-875-3700). Licenses can be renewed beginning May 15 and ending June 30.
