Do I need to Complete North Carolina, South Carolina, Or Both States Continuing Education Hours?

Updated: Jul 14

This question leaves licensees in a blank stare so let's learn the answer.

NC CE Annual Requirements: 4 hour mandatory update & 4 hour elective hours

North Carolina Commission makes the answer to the question simple. You are required to take 8 hour of Continuing Education if you or your firm has a North Carolina address.


Example NC 1: If you live in South Carolina and have a firm located in North Carolina, then you are required to complete all of NC Continuing Education hours.


Example NC 2: If you live in North Carolina and have a firm located in South Carolina, then you are required to complete all of NC Continuing Education hours.


SC CE Biannual Requirements: 4 hour mandatory and 6 hour elective hours

South Carolina Commission makes the answer to the question simple as well. You are required to take 10 hour of Continuing Education if you're a resident of South Carolina.


Example SC 1: If you live in South Carolina and have a firm located in North Carolina, then you are required to complete all of SC Continuing Education hours


Example SC 2: If you live in North Carolina and have a firm located in South Carolina, then you not are required to take 10 hour of Continuing Education if you're a nonresident licensee who complete the continuing education in your resident.



Both (NC/ SC) CE Required: If you live in South Carolina and have a firm with a North Carolina address, then you will complete both NC and SC Continuing Education hours.


Hopefully, this explanation will help you keep up with your continuing education requirements to avoid an inactive license status this year.


Happy CE Hours Hunting!!
