Education Overview
21st Century Building Expo & Conference

Continuing Education Destination

North Carolina general contractor qualifiers are required to annually complete 8 hours of Continuing Education (CE) in order to renew a license in the classifications of Building, Residential and Unclassified.

21CBEC is a convenient, one-stop location for general contractors to obtain all of their CE credits in one day. The classes offered during our three-day Educational Conference are approved by the NC Licensing Board for General Contractors.

Note: The 8-hour CE requirement includes a mandatory 2-hour course with information about changes in the laws and rules and other content applicable to general contracting. The remaining 6 hours are divided into two- and four-hour elective courses. If you have questions about how to satisfy your CE requirement, please email Alison Barnes or call (919) 676-9090.
