The provided table helps in determining if this program fulfills the educational requirements for licensure in the specific states, provinces, or territories listed. In the "Does This Program Meet State Educational Requirements?" column, each state's status is indicated as either “Meets State Educational Requirements,” “Does Not Meet State Educational Requirements,” or "Does Not License.”  Each entry in the table is tailored to the particular state corresponding to that row.

It is essential to understand that meeting the program's educational criteria might not be the sole requirement for licensure. Additional prerequisites might include being listed on a registry, passing background checks, or satisfying certain physical standards. Therefore, students should consult the relevant agency to ascertain the full spectrum of requirements beyond educational accomplishments.

This course is approved by the N.C. Real Estate Commission (NCREC) to satisfy the educational requirements for a broker license.  You will learn basic real estate principles and practices as well as license laws, rules and regulations of the NCREC in preparation for the state exam. Some states still require their state exam for reciprocity, so it is suggested a student check with the state in question before taking the program.
