Code of Ethics RequirementNEW changes for the Code of Ethics mandate!! The National Association of Realtors requires all members of Realtor Associations to complete an approved Code of Ethics course between January 1, 2017 and December 31, 2018. NAR’s mandate is now a once every two-year requirement for all Realtors whether or not you are a Broker or an Affiliate Broker. You MUST take this course even if you are “grandfathered” and the state does not require that you take continuing education. NOTE: The Realtor Code of Ethics course is NOT the same course as the Tennessee Real Estate Commission’s TREC CORE course which is required for real estate license renewal by many agents. Failure to complete training during any cycle will lead to suspension of membership for the January and February immediately following the cycle deadline, with termination of membership starting March 1 after the cycle deadline.
