MANDATORY CODE OF ETHICS TRAINING
Mandatory ethics training requirements for new and continuing REALTOR® members was established by the National Association’s Board of Directors at the 1999 Annual Convention and went into effect for all active REALTOR® members on January 1, 2001. In November of 2019 NAR's Board of Directors approved a change to the Code of Ethics training requirement, extending it from every two years, as previously prescribed, to every three years. This extends the current cycle deadline to Dec. 31, 2021.
What does this mean to members? All active REALTOR® members must take a code of ethics class sometime between January 1, 2018 and December 31, 2021. Failure to meet the mandate is a violation of membership requirements and will result in suspension of membership until the requirement is met or until membership is automatically terminated.
This class meets the NAR mandated requirement for completion of a Code of Ethics class and fulfills the FREC BP requirement
