2020 Con Ed Classes w/Jack Waller - NCI Associates LTD
These Classes fulfill the 6-hours of Con Ed each year (including legal) AND the NAR Mandatory Code of Ethics

National Association of REALTORS® (NAR)
Code of Ethics Training Requirement
Current Cycle: Jan 1, 2019 through Dec 31, 2021

NAR's Board of Directors recently approved a change to the Code of Ethics training requirement, extending it from every two years to every three ears. This extends the current cycle deadline from Dec. 31, 2020, to Dec. 31, 2021.

REALTORS® are required to complete ethics training of not less than 2 hours, 30 minutes of instructional time. The training must meet specific learning objectives and criteria established by the National Association of REALTORS®.

Failure to complete the required periodic ethics training shall be considered a violation of a membership duty which will result in suspension of membership for not less than thirty (30) days. On March 1, 2022, the membership of a member who is still suspended as of that date will be automatically terminated.

The deadline is December 31, 2021 to fulfill this requirement.

There are different options available to complete the required ethics training:

1.      SEBAR is offering three more Continuing Education Classes this year with Jack Waller of NCI Associates. (See dates above)

2.      The course is available on NAR’s website (www.nar.realtor) for no charge. Go to their website and look for Code of Ethics training.

If you have questions on whether you have fulfilled the Code of Ethics requirement, please feel free to email DBirkner@SEBrealtors.com
