Code of Ethics Training - Overview
Effective January 1, 2001 through December 31, 2004, and for successive four year periods thereafter, every REALTOR® is required to complete 2 1/2 hours of Code of Ethics training. REALTORS® who have completed this training as a requirement of membership in another association or who have completed the New Member Code of Ethics Orientation during any four year cycle are not required to complete additional ethics training until a new four year cycle begins.
The current quadrennial period began on January 1, 2013 and will end on December 31, 2016.
Associations are required to provide access
to such training. Failure to comply with this required ethics training is a violation of a
membership duty for which the member’s
primary association will suspend membership until the training is complete.
There is also an accompanying ethics orientation training requirement for REALTOR® applicants that must be satisfied after applying for membership.
