Code of Ethics Training
NAR’s 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 hours, 30 minutes of instructional time. The training must meet specific learning objectives and criteria established by the National Association of REALTORS®.
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. Courses offered by 3rd-party providers designed for state CE credit may count towards your association of REALTORS® Code of Ethics Training Requirement, but NAR does not track such courses nor approve them.

Fairhaven: A Fair Housing Simulation
Fairhaven is a town every REALTOR® should visit. Online, that is.
In November 2020, NAR launched Fairhaven, a new fair housing simulation training for REALTORS® that uses the power of storytelling to help members identify, prevent, and address discriminatory practices in real estate.
