Required Code of Ethics
Training for REALTORS®
Ethics Training Deadline December 31, 2016
Have you completed
your mandatory NAR Code of Ethics Training Course?
All REALTORS® and applicants for REALTOR® membership
are required by the National Association of REALTORS® to complete 2 1/2 hours of ethics training every 4 years.
We're now in
the forth 4-year cycle which began January 1, 2013 & ends December 31, 2016.
*REALTORS® who have completed this training as a requirement of membership in another association
are not required to complete additional ethics training until a new four year cycle begins.
There are two different ways that it
can be completed: on-line or in a class.
Whichever way you choose to get your Code of Ethics Training, do it soon.
Please don't wait until December 2016 and be one of the many trying to "get it done at the last minute".
Avoid the stampede - do it now!
makes the training easy, by allowing you to complete the training for free on-line! The course is available at realtor.org.

You'll need your NRDS ID# to log in. If
you don't have it, call the Board Office and get it.
If you've recently joined the Association
and have never done Ethics Training, then you would do the new member Orientation Course.
If you've been a member and have done it before, then you would do the Continuing Member Course.
What if a REALTOR® doesn’t meet the training requirement on time?
Failure to meet the requirement is a violation
of a membership requirement and results in suspension of membership until the requirement is met.
The consequences of suspension of a REALTOR®
for failing to meet the training requirement will be treated the same as suspension for violating any other membership duty
as defined in The Code of Ethics and Arbitration Manual, in relevant part, "…suspension of membership rights
and privileges and denial of Board services…on terms and conditions expressly stated…including, but not limited
to, use of the terms REALTOR® and REALTOR-Associate®…"
