JCR Productions always knows my continuing education status – it’s like magic!
We’ll let you in on a secret… anyone can see your license status.
If at any time you want to check the status of your license, you can either log in to your online account, or check in the public view at www.ncbeec.org. You will see a menu bar on the page that says “Check CE Credit”. This will take you to a search page where you may search by license number or by name as the NC Board has it listed.
If you click on your name, you will see the following information about your license:
- if the license is Active or Inactive,
- when the license expires,
- if there is enough continuing education to renew your license (True/False),
- a comment of what type of continuing education is needed (classroom or non-classroom),
- and how many hours you currently have out of the required amount.
Limited through Unlimited licenses, for example, require 8 hours of continuing education units (CEU) every year to renew your license. (Most speciality licenses require 4 hours) North Carolina requires half on your hours to be “classroom”. But, think of your license like a bank and know that you may bank up to three years worth of continuing education (or 24 hours) to use when you’re due to renew your license.
When you renew your license, NC will use your continuing education hours as part of your “payment” for your renewal. If you happen to have a mix of classroom hours and non-classroom hours in your bank, they will take half of your classroom and half of your non-classroom – so you don’t have to worry that in one renewal all of your in person hours get used! This is also why JCR Productions offers an online course with the purchase of your workshop; so you don’t have to use all your classroom hours in one go when renewing.
Many other states also have a search feature similar to North Carolina. Take a look at our Helpful Links page to find your state and link over to their license lookup page to see if your state has this feature.
As always, we are here if you have any questions, or if you just want to leave it to us to tell you what’s needed.
