REALTORS® are different from others who hold a real estate license. REALTORS® voluntarily pledge to abide by a strict code of professional conduct above and beyond the licensing laws of the state. This conduct is outlined in the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR) Code of Ethics.
- View the Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice of the National Association of REALTORS®; or
- Learn more by visiting the NAR website.
All REALTORS® are required to complete at least 2½ hours of REALTOR® Code of Ethics (COE) training each 3-year cycle. We are currently in Cycle 7 which ends December 31, 2024.
New members joining us must complete the training within 60-days of joining a brokerage. Once the new member course is complete, you will not need to complete additional REALTOR® COE training until the next 3-year cycle; Cycle 8.
REALTOR® COE training must meet specific learning objectives and criteria established by the National Association of REALTORS® and must be approved by the Anchorage Board of REALTORS®. Many courses offered by 3rd-party providers are not approved for the REALTOR® Code of Ethics training requirement. Send us an email to confirm the class you plan to attend or teach meets our requirements.
