Building Expo

Will my continuing education classes count towards my eight CE hours required by the NC Licensing Board for General Contractor (NCLBGC)?

Yes, all classes offered by the North Carolina Builder Institute (NCBI) have been approved by the NCLBGC and will count towards your yearly requirements. You must make sure you have entered your qualifier number (not your license number) and your name exactly as it appears on your qualifier record or you may not get credit for your class(es).
