NAR Quadrennial Ethics Requirement

REALTORS® are required to complete ethics training of not less than 2 hours, 30 minutes of instructional time within two-year cycles. The training must meet specific learning objectives and criteria established by the National Association of REALTORS®.  A new two-year cycle began January 1, 2017. The deadline for this cycle is December 31, 2018. Training may be completed through local REALTOR® associations or through another method, such as home study, correspondence, classroom courses, or online courses.


A REALTOR® completing the New Member Code of Ethics Orientation during any four year cycle shall not be required to complete additional ethics training in respect of this requirement until a new four 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.


Every board and association is required to provide access to necessary ethics training programs either locally, in conjunction with other boards and associations, or through other methods (including, but not limited to, home study, correspondence courses, or internet-based instruction). Any training offered pursuant to this requirement must meet the learning objectives and minimum criteria established by the NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS® from time to time.
