Code of Ethics and Quadrennial Ethics Training Requirements
A requirement through the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR®) that went into effect January 1, 2001 states that ALL REALTORS® MUST take continuing ethics training every four (4) years.
This 2 1/2 hour course was put into place in order to create an awareness and appreciation for the role that Code can and should play in their professional lives; to enhance professionalism and competency; and to encourage REALTORS® to view their Code of Ethics as living, viable guide in their daily dealings with clients.
New Members/REALTORS® have a short window of time to take the test that will need to be taken every four (4) years. To complete the training:
