The National Association of REALTORS® requires all members to complete 2.5 hours of Code of Ethics training per three-year cycle. Failure to comply with this requirement is a violation of a membership duty and may result in termination.
The current Code of Ethics cycle (Cycle 6) runs from January 1, 2019, through December 31, 2021. If the requirement is not satisfied on or before December 31, 2021, the member will be suspended from membership for two (2) months or until the member satisfies the requirement, whichever is sooner. On March 1, 2022, if the member is still not in compliance, then they will be terminated from membership.
