Are you aware that the National Association of REALTORS® requires you to take an Ethics course of at least 2.5 hours every 3 years?



Course Description:
The course emphasizes that the standards of ethical conduct in the practice of real estate are based upon the National Association of Realtor's® Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice and upon federal and state laws governing conduct applicable to the practice of real estate

Do I Need to Take the Ethics Course?


How Does the 3 Year Cycle Work?
NAR requires every REALTOR® to take an Ethics course every three years. The current Ethics requirement cycle ends in 2024. If you still need to meet your Ethics requirement, C.A.R. Education provides a FREE Ethics Course to all members. This course meets the NAR requirement. We will even report that you have passed the course directly to NAR.

Working on Your CE License Renewal?
The FREE Ethics course is included in the 45 Hours of FREE CE course also available to all C.A.R. members. That’s right – if you are currently taking your 45 hours of Continuing Education, the Ethics course is part of the package!
