Continuing Education Exemption for Licensed Auctioneers Age 65 or Older

Auctioneers who are at least 65 years old and have been licensed in North Carolina for at least the previous FIVE years are exempt from Continuing Education requirements for annual license renewal purposes. The CE exemption does not apply to Auction Firm Designated Persons, unless they are otherwise exempted licensed Auctioneers, as described above. Additionally, any licensed Auctioneer or Auction Firm Designated Person experiencing a hardship may submit a written request to the Board for a CE waiver for the next license renewal period. Waiver requests must be in written form and detail the reason(s) for the request. Waiver requests are considered by the Board on a case-by-case basis. Licensees are welcome and encouraged to take CE courses, whether they are exempt or not.
