Code of Ethics Training

The National Association of REALTORS® (NAR) 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 Dec. 31, 2020, to Dec. 31, 2021.

Realtors® are required to complete ethics training of not less than 2.5 hours of instructional time. The training must meet specific learning objectives and criteria established by NAR.


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.

Check your NAR Code of Ethics status! If you have completed your course, but it is not showing on NAR’s website, send your certificate of completion to CORE to update your record.
