IMPORTANT CHANGE FOR 2017:
At the 2014 Convention in New Orleans, the Board of Directors of the National Association of REALTORS® amended the four year time frame for Code of Ethics training to a two year time frame. The change goes into effect following conclusion of the current four year cycle on December 31, 2016.
Consequently, beginning January 1, 2017 all REALTORS® will be required to complete Code of Ethics training every two years.
REALTORS® are required to complete ethics training of not less than two hours and thirty minutes of instructional time every two years. REALTORS® completing such training during any two year cycle shall not be required to complete additional ethics training in respect of this requirement as a requirement of membership in any other board or association.
A REALTOR® completing the New Member Code of Ethics Orientation during any two year cycle shall not be required to complete additional ethics training in respect of this requirement until a new two 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.
