The ABCs of NAR’s Code of Ethics Requirements.
In 2019, changes were approved regarding the National Association of REALTORS® Code of Ethics training requirements. Here’s what you need to know:
All members must complete at least 2.5 hours of ethics training by December 31, 2021. These hours are for maintaining membership at NAR and not necessarily part of your Texas license renewal.
By the end of this year, if the requirement isn’t satisfied, your REALTOR® membership will be suspended. This means that you will no longer have access to association-provided membership rights, privileges, and services from your local, state, or national association until the ethics training requirement has been met. If you still haven’t completed the training by March 1, 2022, your membership will be terminated.
Courses to choose from that satisfy the NAR requirement:
- Code of Ethics courses offered through MetroTex (mymetrotex.com/code-of-ethics)
- Code of Ethics courses offered by Texas REALTORS® (texasrealestate.com/ethicstraining)
- The NAR C2EX endorsement (nar.realtor/c2ex)
- NAR Official Code of Ethics Online Training (nar.realtor/coe)
