Mandatory Code of Ethics Training

Biennial Code of Ethics Training

In an ongoing effort to raise the level of professionalism and ethics in the real estate industry the National Association of REALTORS® has instituted a mandatory "Code of Ethics Biennial Training Cycle".

  • Starting this year, every REALTOR® member of every Association in the United States is required to complete ethics training of not less than 2.5 hours every two years - thus the name "biennial" training.
  • The deadline for this cycle is December 31, 2018. The "NAR Code of Ethics" includes a final exam to test your comprehension of the material and a downloadable certificate for your office.
  • If this course is taken as a sanction for an ethics violation, the certification can be submitted as proof of completion.

    Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice

    All REALTORS® must abide by NAR's Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice. The Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice outline duties that REALTORS® have to clients and customers, the public, and other REALTORS®. While the Code of Ethics establishes obligations that may be higher than those mandated by law, in any instance where the Code of Ethics and the law conflict, the obligations of the law must take precedence.
