About The National Association of REALTORS® Code of Ethic Course Requirement

The National Association of REALTORS® rule is that you must take an Ethics Class during every three year cycle. The first current cycle is set from January 1, 2022 through December 31, 2024. The next cycle will be January 1, 2025 to December 31, 2027.

Our Ethics course satisfies both the DRE renewal and the National Association of REALTORS® regulation for the January 1, 2022 to December 31, 2024. However, after December 31, 2024, members of the National Association of REALTORS® will be required to take the Ethics course again.

Duane Gomer Education will be offering this as an independent course for the low price of $9.99. As always, the standard 4-year DRE renewal package will include the Ethics course for the 3 year NAR period

Please feel free to call our office (800) 439-4909 if you have any questions.



12 Things NAR Members Should Know about the New Ethics Requirements

New Ethics Requirements for NAR Members

There is a new Ethics regulation implemented by the National Association of REALTORS® that has not been widely distributed. There is no exemption for this requirement for Realtors over 70.

  1. Who must take the extra Ethics classes?

    All REALTORS®. This is an NAR rule, so this does not affect California Licensees who are not REALTORS® Therefore, please do not call the California Department of Real Estate; they have nothing to do with this new requirement.

  2. If I take an Ethics Class every four years to renew my license, will this count for one of the classes?

    Yes, but do not take the Survey License Renewal Course in lieu of taking the six Mandatory courses.

  3. Why did NAR do this?
    • To heighten member awareness of the key tenets of the Code of Ethics;

    • To create an awareness of and appreciation for the role the Code can and should play in their professional lives;

    • To enhance professionalism and competency; and

    • To encourage REALTORS® to view their Code of Ethics as a living, viable guide in their daily dealings with clients, customers, and the public.

  4. Who is responsible for notifying NAR?

    REALTORS® must report their class to their local Association, who then notifies NAR.

  5. Can I take a class from someone other than NAR of CAR?

    Yes, you can take your classes from Proprietary Provider (translation-Duane Gomer Education). Our courses qualify as they are approved by the DRE.

  6. When will I have to take them?

    The rule is that you must take an Ethics Class during every three year cycle, not 4 year. The first cycle is set as January 1, 2019 to December 31, 2021. The second cycle will be January 1, 2022 to December 31, 2024.

  7. Does the date of my license renewal have any bearing on this?

    No. It is when you take the actual classes.

  8. My license renews during the first cycle.

    Take an Ethics class during the first three years. Then wait until 1/1/2022 to take another Ethics Course.

  9. My license renews during the second cycle.

    Be sure you complete three hours of Ethics during the first cycle even if you do not take the other 42 Hours to renew.

  10. What happens if I do not do it on time?

    Your REALTORS® membership will be suspended and that includes all aspects. The suspension will run for two months or until the course is completed. After two months, your membership is terminated.

  11. Where can I get more information?

    Go to Realtor.org and put in the search bar, "New Ethic's Requirements".
