Code of Ethics Training Requirement Will Be Three Years After 2021

At its Nov. 11 meeting, NAR’s Board of Directors approved a change to NAR’s Code of Ethics training requirement.

Since 2001, REALTORS® have been required to take Code of Ethics training to retain their membership. Originally, the training was required every four years, but in 2017, NAR changed the requirement to every two years. A presidential advisory group (PAG), appointed in 2019, made several recommendations to the NAR Leadership Team. One of its recommendations was to extend the requirement to every three years in order to give members more time to fit it into their continuing education schedule and to give local associations adequate time between cycles to administer the program.

The Leadership Team sought feedback from several committees before bringing the proposal before the board of directors.

Separately, the Leadership Team approved several recommendations of the PAG that didn’t require a board vote:

1. That the learning objectives for the existing member Code of Ethics training be revised to include content on professional conduct, courtesies, business etiquette, and real-life scenarios.

2. That NAR establish Code of Ethics training equivalency options that members can take to satisfy the Code of Ethics training requirement and that the Commitment to Excellence (C2EX) endorsement be an equivalency option.

3. That only courses and equivalencies provided by a local, state, or national REALTOR® association can satisfy the Code of Ethics training requirement.

4. That an implementation team be appointed to develop a microsite that compiles all available options for fulfilling the Code of Ethics training requirement, including C2EX ethics modules, NAR-approved online courses, and links to association-approved courses.

The NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS® is an unrivaled advocate and resource in the real estate market for its members and their clients, and only members of NAR can call themselves REALTORS®.

NFIP Avoids Lapse - Program Extended through Nov. 21st

One Inch 25000

Flooding is the most common and costly natural disaster in the U.S., causing more than 1 trillion dollars in damage to crops and property from 2000 to 2018, and that number keeps rising.

The National Flood Insurance Program avoided another potential lapse receiving its 13th short term extension since 2016. REALTORS® across the country continue to urge Congress to resume working toward a long-term reauthorization of the National Flood Insurance Program to prevent any future lapses of the program. NAR strongly supports the NFIP Reauthorization Act, which includes a 5-year extension along with significant reforms to improve mapping, enhance mitigation and remove obstacles to private flood insurance. H.R. 3167 strikes a delicate balance between NFIP sustainability and affordability. 

As a real estate professional, flooding can also impact your business. Flooding is considered a material fact to a real estate transaction, and failure to disclosure flood damage can result in liability. In addition, it’s important to counsel buyers about the need and availability of flood insurance.
