Purpose Commission Rule A.1903 provides that a provisional broker may request and be granted an extension of time to satisfy the postlicensing education requirement for any of the first three years following the date of his or her initial licensure as a broker if the licensee provides evidence satisfactory to the Commission that he or she was unable to obtain the necessary education due to an incapacitating illness or other circumstance which existed for a substantial portion of the year in question and which constituted a severe and verifiable hardship such that to comply with the education requirement would have been impossible or unreasonably burdensome.
The Commission shall not grant an extension of time when the reason for the request is a business or personal conflict or when, in the opinion of the Commission, the principal reason for the provisional broker’s failure to obtain the required education in a timely manner was due to an unreasonable delay on the part of the provisional broker in obtaining such education.
MARCH 2020 UPDATE: STATE OF EMERGENCY IN RESPONSE TO COVID-19 AND ATTENDANCE AT POSTLICENSING AND CONTINUING EDUCATION COURSES
On March 10, 2020, Governor Roy Cooper declared a State of Emergency for the State of North Carolina based on the public health emergency posed by COVID-19. Licensees who are at high risk of severe illness from COVID-19, have recently traveled to any area currently listed by the CDC as having an elevated risk, or are sick or symptomatic, are strongly advised to not attend classroom-based education courses. Extensions of the education deadlines may be requested in such cases.
