Auctioneering is brand new to RCC, and is one of only three community colleges accredited to offer the course in North Carolina. Students can earn the knowledge to become licensed and be hired to sell real estate, antique/collectible vehicles, valuable art/jewelry, antiques, and household contents. Students will learn a wide variety of skills, including bid calling, voice control, rules/regulations, auctioneering ethics, and handling sale proceeds/escrow accounts. The course is taught by two licensed Auctioneers, a licensed Real Estate broker, a District Court Judge, and a variety of other knowledgeable instructors. Upon completion of the 96-hour course, students can apply for licensure with the N.C. Auctioneer Licensing Board. The license has reciprocity in 17 other states: Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Mississippi, New Hampshire, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, and Wisconsin. Two versions of the course are offered: an 18-week course that meets two evenings a week, and an intense two-week course perfect for out-of-towners to finish quickly. This course is eligible for RCC’s Eagle Train & Gain Scholarship. Auctioneer examinations are taken at the NC Auctioneer Licensing Board’s office in Raleigh and the exam fee is paid by the individual directly to the Board.
