Code of Ethics Training for NVAR Members


Code of Ethics

Code of Ethics Training

NAR’s Code of Ethics was adopted in 1913. It was one of the first set of ethical rules standardized and adopted by any business or group. It ensures that Realtors® work with each other and their clients in everyone's best interests involved.

Current Realtor® members must complete two and a half (2.5) hours of ethics training every three (3) years.

Realtors® who have completed the required ethics training within a three-year cycle in one association will not be required to complete any further training for that same training cycle if the Realtor® decides to become a member of another association.

If you have completed a Code of Ethics course at a school other than NAR or NVAR, please email your Certificate of Completion along with your NRDS number to

If you have completed a Code of Ethics course through NAR's online portal on their website, you do not need to email NVAR your certificate. It will update automatically. Please note: it will take approximately 24 hours for NAR’s website to update.
