The National Association of REALTORS® launched a new online REALTOR® Code of Ethics training course that qualifies for continuing education credits in select states. This new online course, which costs $29.95 with volume discounts available, offers a highly engaging and interactive experience.
An enhanced, free non-CE course option will also be available at the Center for REALTOR® Development in the first quarter of this year. This version includes customized electives to create training based on a student’s interests. It also offers specialized content available for commercial, appraisal, and residential practitioners.
All REALTORS® are required to complete ethics training within designated training cycles. Training must be no less than 2 hours and 30 minutes of instructional time in a four-year cycle. The deadline for the current training cycle is Dec. 31, 2016.
The new CE course is one of several planned enhancements to NAR’s online ethics training offerings—all of which meet specific and rigorous criteria—through which REALTORS® may meet their membership training obligations.
