Upgrading from Provisional Broker to Broker
A Provisional Broker is an entry-level NC broker. They can preform all of the same activities of a broker, but they must be supervised by a Broker in Charge. They cannot operate independently. A Broker is the most common license type. Follow these steps to become a Broker...
Step 1. Provisional Broker must complete all 3 Post Licensing courses within 2 years.
These 3 courses are referred to as 301, 302, and 303.
Step 2. Pass the final exam.
Step 3. Congratulations. You are now a NC Broker, the most common license type.
As a broker, you are able to engage in brokerage if you work for a licensed real estate brokerage firm or a Broker in Charge.
Becoming a Broker in Charge
This is the highest level license. You must be a Broker for at least 2 years (within the previous 5 years) before you can become a Broker in Charge. Every real estate firm in NC must have a designated Broker in Charge. They are responsible for the Brokers under them.
Step 1. Apply for BIC Eligibility on NC Real Estate Commission's website (form 2.25) and wait for their approval.
Step 2. Complete the 12 hour Broker in Charge Eligibility course no earlier than 1 year prior to and no later than 120 days after application for the status.
