Mandatory Ethics Training
Quadrennial Ethics Training
All REALTOR® members are required to complete 2.5 hours of Code of Ethics training per four-year cycle. Currently cycle, January 1, through December 31.
Failure to comply with this required ethics training is a violation of a membership duty, for which the member’s primary association will suspend membership until the training is complete.
The only REALTORS® exempt from this requirement are REALTORS® with REALTOR® Emeritus status.
Appraisers or Attorneys must meet this membership requirement and are not exempt.
NOTE: This is a National Association of REALTORS® mandate.
There are multiple ways to complete your Quadrennial Ethics Requirement:

After each Quick Review Quiz, the course can be exited and started again with the next lesson. Failure to complete a Quick Review Quiz prior to exiting the course will require that lesson be taken over. Individuals have 30 days from the original start date to complete the entire course without having to re-register and start from the beginning.
