The Code of Ethics training is required by the National Association of REALTORS® and is a
requirement to maintain membership in the local board of REALTORS®, the ND Association of
REALTORS® and the National Association of REALTORS®. The Code of Ethics training is a
3 year cycle requirement – each member must take an approved course every three years.

The current  cycle is January 1, 2022 to December 31, 2024.


All members must have completed an approved Code of Ethics course of at least 2 ½ hours by December 31, 2024 to
continue their membership in the local, state, and national association.

NAR has launched a new tool that allows members to check their training status, choose their preferred Code of Ethics training format (online or in person), and go directly to the training options available to them. The Code of Ethics Training Selection tool is available at

New members of local REALTOR® associations must complete similar training when they first join. A new member who has completed the New Member Code of Ethics Orientation shall not be required to complete additional ethics training until the next two year cycle.

REALTORS® who have completed the required ethics training within a two-year cycle in one association shall not be required to complete any further ethics training for that same training cycle if the REALTOR® becomes or is a member of another association.

*Note – C2EX (Commitment to Excellence) certification/endorsement meets this requirement.  It will not be a “lifetime” equivalency & will be tied to meeting each cycle’s COE course.  (more info to come).
