Quadrennial Code of Ethics Training: Deadline 12/31/2016

Between January 1, 2013 and December 31, 2016 every REALTOR® is required to complete 2 1/2 hours of Code of Ethics training. REALTORS® who have joined the association after January 1, 2013 and attended the Code of Ethics portion of Orientation have already fulfilled their training requirements. All other REALTOR® members must complete the training by December 31, 2016, in order to continue their REALTOR® membership.

According to NAR: "Failure to complete the required periodic ethics training shall be considered a violation of a membership duty; for which, REALTOR® membership shall be suspended until such time as the required training has been completed."

Thanks in advance for your cooperation! If you have any questions regarding this training or any other membership questions, please contact NEAR Membership Coordinator Sharon Sarvela by email or call 978-577-6138.
