Code of Ethics Training | Chicago Association of REALTORS®


All REALTOR® members are required to complete 2.5 hours of Code of Ethics training per three-year cycle. We are currently in the Seventh Training Cycle, January 1, 2022 through December 31, 2024. 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 members with REALTOR® Emeritus status. Appraisers or Attorneys must meet this membership requirement and are not exempt.

Ethics & CE: What’s The Difference?

This is a National Association of REALTORS® mandate, NOT a requirement of IDFPR or its 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.
