NAR has online free hours and CE hours.

NAR’s Board of Directors approved a change to the Code of Ethics training requirement, extending it from every two years to every three years. This extends the current cycle deadline from March 1, 2022, to Dec. 31, 2024.

REALTORS® are required to complete ethics training of not less than 2 hours, 30 minutes of instructional time. The training must meet specific learning objectives and criteria established by the National Association of REALTORS®.

Training may be completed through NAR’s online courses or through another method, such as online or classroom courses via local/state associations. Read the consequences for failing to complete Code of Ethics training.

The SCR lawyers are on a statewide road show presenting 2.5 hours of ethics, arbitration, and mediation training (aka professional standards training). Contact your local board/association ASAP to see when your local board/association is holding training.
