What is a Qualifier?

A qualifier is a responsible managing employee, owner, officer, or member of an LLC or partnership who successfully completes the examination required for licensing. Exams completed by qualifiers determine the classification(s) on the license. Qualifiers may qualify up to two licenses provided the qualifier is a managing employee, owner, officer or member of an LLC or partnership. Qualifiers are not licensees but are the holders of a qualifying credential that is required for licensure. Qualifying exams can be transferred between licenses however licenses themselves cannot be transferred. See NCAC Title 21 Chapter 12A .0205(a).

What is the Difference Between a License vs. a Qualifier?

Licensees have met all the requirements for license including completing the application, meeting a financial requirement, and having someone complete the exam on behalf of the license. Licenses are issued to a specific legal entity whose name is listed on the license. Licenses can be granted to corporations, LLCs, partnerships, or individuals.
Qualifiers are the people who pass the exams on behalf of a license. Qualifiers are defined as responsible managing employees, owners, or officers of the licensed entity. Qualifiers are not licensees unless they applied for and received a license as the individual.
