FAQ: Does NC have any license accommodations for members of the military?

Does NC have any license accommodations for members of the military?

Although the State of North Carolina allows individuals in the military to substitute military training equivalencies for the requirements of occupational licensing, the North Carolina Real Estate Commission has determined that there are no military training equivalencies within any of the seven branches of the military that satisfy the educational requirements nor any training that is equivalent to passing the real estate license exam. If you are a member of the military, you will need to meet the same education and exam requirements as other applicants.
