REALTORS® are required to complete ethics training for the fourth cycle. The deadline is December 31, 2016.
Between January 1, 2013 and December 31, 2016, every REALTOR® is required to complete 2 1/2 hours of Code of Ethics training. REALTORS® who have completed this training as a requirement of membership in another association are not required to complete additional ethics training until the next four year cycle.
Listed below is a list of courses that have been approved and accepted by all of the boards and the State Association that meet your NAR Mandatory Ethics Training. We will continue to add classes to this list as they become available.
You can also take the Mandatory Ethics training online at www.realtor.org for free. You will not receive any continuing education credits for taking the training.
New Member Code of Ethics
A REALTOR® completing the New Member Code of Ethics Orientation during any four year cycle shall not be required to complete additional ethics training in respect of this requirement until a new four year cycle commences.
Failure to complete the required periodic ethics training shall be considered a violation of a membership duty for which REALTOR® membership shall be suspended until such time as the required training is completed.
Every board and association is required to provide access to necessary ethics training programs either locally, in conjunction with other boards and associations, or through other methods (including, but not limited to, home study, correspondence courses, or internet-based instruction). Any training offered pursuant to this requirement must meet the learning objectives and minimum criteria established by the NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS® from time to time.
