NAR Ethics Requirement

As a member of the National Association of REALTORS® and the Greater Louisville Association of REALTORS®, you must fulfill your Ethics obligation every three (3) years.  Cycle 6 is January 1, 2019, through December 31, 2021.  Failure to complete this requirement will result in a suspension of your membership privileges with the Greater Louisville Association of REALTORS® (GLAR) and National Association of REALTORS® (NAR).

Beginning January 1, 2020, members may only satisfy their NAR Code of Ethics training requirement by completing an approved ethics course provided by:

  1. A Local Realtor® Association, such as GLAR – Find a class.
  2. A State Realtor® Association, such as KYR
  3. Online through NAR (This will not count for continuing education credit.)
  4. Online through The CE Shop, which is a NAR approved provider

Courses offered by other providers WILL NOT satisfy the NAR Code of Ethics training obligation.

If you complete your Code of Ethics requirement through The CE Shop, please send a copy of your completion certificate to the GLAR Professional Development Department at 502-855-5134 or email to Education@LouisvilleRealtors.com so that we may update your member record.

WHAT IF I AM GRANDFATHERED?
Members who are “Grandfathered” by the Kentucky Real Estate Commission (KREC) may still be required to satisfy this NAR® requirement.  Only Emeritus members are exempt.

SECONDARY MEMBERS OF GLAR
Secondary members of GLAR, please contact your primary REALTOR® Association for more information about this requirement.

ARE ETHICS & CORE THE SAME THING?
No, they are not the same thing.  Ethics is not the same class as the Kentucky Core course.  Core is a CE requirement of the KREC. Ethics is a membership requirement of NAR®. They are two different requirements.
