NAR Code of Ethics Requirement
NAR Code of Ethics Course
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.
NAR currently offers two training options. The first is a free course that fulfills the NAR licensing requirement but is no longer offered for CE credit. The second is a paid version of the course that includes CE credit in addition to fulfilling the NAR requirement. Both options fulfill the NAR Code of Ethics requirement.
