Take NAR's online Code of Ethics Class NOW!
With the start of its current cycle, the National Association of REALTORS® adjusted the Code of Ethics requirement to a three-year cycle, which will end December 31, 2021.
MCAR will be offering numerous classes throughout the coming year, many of which will also provide continuing education credit for the 5/31/2018 PA license renewal cycle.
In addition to courses offered through MCAR, training may be completed through home study, correspondence, classroom courses, or online courses including NAR's no-cost online option. (NOTE: NAR's course fulfills member's Code of Ethics training requirement, but does not count toward continuing education credit for Pennsylvania state licensing requirements)
Membership in the National Association of REALTORS® ensures that the real estate professional identified by the REALTOR® symbol has subscribed to the NAR Code of Ethics. REALTOR® members are required as a condition of membership to attend training on Professional Standards practices and procedures once every four years in order to retain active membership status. Read the REALTOR® Pledge of Performance and Service.
REALTOR® members commit to business integrity and a sense of fair dealing. Certain rights, privileges, and requirements are afforded to REALTOR® members as well as the general public with respect to the Code of Ethics and Arbitration procedures.
MCAR's Professionalism Task Force developed a list of courtesies, known as the "Principles of Practice," which were designed to serve as the basis for acceptable professional behavior by MCAR REALTORS®. While these standards of conduct cannot be used as the basis for a professional standards complaint, they are intended to augment the Code of Ethics subscribed to by all REALTOR® Members.
