Code of Ethics

REALTORS® ascribe to the National Association of REALTORS® Code of Ethics. The NAR Code of Ethics is the standard to which all REALTORS® are held and keeps REALTORS® a step above a real estate licensee. The Code of Ethics is part of the REALTOR® brand. As such, NAR requires all members to complete a 2.5 hour (minimum) Code of Ethics training every three years to maintain membership.

Members can check to see if they have completed the course in the current triennial cycle by clicking on the link here and selecting “View My Education Records”; or WATCH the Code of Ethics Video to learn how to look up your status.

Appraisers who are REALTOR® members are required to complete the NAR Code of Ethics course each triennial cycle.


Members still needing to take the Code of Ethics course have several different options:

*Please note: when taking the course from another provider (not through a Local Association/Board, OAR or NAR), check with your Local Association/Board to verify that the course satisfies the requirement. A standard Business Ethics course does not qualify. Then, submit your CE certificate to your Local Association/Board to receive the official Code of Ethics credit with NAR.
