The Chicago Association of REALTORS®, the “Voice for Real Estate” in Chicago since 1883, represents over 17,000 members from all real estate specialties including commercial sales, development, property management, appraisal, auctions and residential sales.
All REALTOR® members are required to complete 2.5 hours of Code of Ethics training per three-year cycle. We are currently in the Sixth Training Cycle, December 31, 2018 through December 31, 2021. Failure to comply with this required ethics training is a violation of a membership duty, for which the member’s primary association will suspend membership until the training is complete.
The only REALTORS® exempt from this requirement are REALTORS® with REALTOR® Emeritus status.
Appraisers or Attorneys must meet this membership requirement and are not exempt.
NOTE: This is a National Association of REALTORS® mandate; NOT a requirement of the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation or it’s Continuing Education course requirement. However, if you take an Ethics CE course you will meet part of your CE requirement as well as the NAR® membership mandate.
