The Code of Ethics

The National Association of REALTORS® says you must TAKE IT! Code of Ethics is not just a required course for NAR membership; it sets REALTORS® above the standard.

  • Heightens member awareness of the key tenets of the Code of Ethics
  • Creates an awareness of and appreciation for the role the Code can and should play in their professional lives
  • Enhance professionalism and competency
  • Encourages REALTORS® to view their Code of Ethics as a living, viable guide in their daily dealings with clients, customers and the public
As of January 1, 2001, the National Association of REALTORS® requires all REALTORS® to complete a 2 1/2 hour course on ethics every four consecutive years. Saturday, December 31, 2018 brings the end of this now two-year cycle.

Beginning January 1, 2017, the requirement is every two years. The current and fifth cycle ends December 31, 2018.

All new WeMAR members are asked to complete Code of Ethics within their first 90-days of membership. Attend the New Member Orientation & NAR Code of Ethics course at WeMAR FREE of charge. You'll also earn 3 hours Commissioner's Standards continuing education credit for your ADRE license renewal.
