Deadline Approaching: REALTORS® Must Complete NAR Code of Ethics Course by 12/31/24

Posted by GCAR on January 11, 2024

December 31, 2024, is the deadline for completing cycle 7 of the National Association of REALTORS® code of ethics course requirement.
REALTORS® are required to complete an ethics course of not less than 2 hours 30 minutes of instruction time with or without continuing education (CE) credit. The ethics course must meet specific learning objectives and criteria established by the National Association of REALTORS®.

Failure to complete training during any cycle will lead to suspension of membership for January and February immediately following the cycle deadline, with termination of membership starting March 1 after the cycle deadline.

GCAR will submit evidence to NAR indicating member compliance if members took their ethics course at GCAR or through The CE Shop. However, if members took their ethics course elsewhere, they must send their course completion certificate to, which will be sent to NAR.

GCAR will offer multiple course opportunities throughout 2024; check the GCAR Education Calendar for the most up-to-date class schedule.

Does GCAR have proof of my ethics course?
If a member took their ethics course through GCAR or our online partner, The CE Shop, then YES, we have your certificate of completion, and no work is required.

If you are uncertain of your status, visit and click ‘GCAR LOGIN’ to access member services. Choose ‘Member Education History’ then choose ‘Personal Education Tracking.’ Under ‘Category,’ you will see ‘Cycle 7 2022-2024 Ethics Req’; the ‘status’ field will say ‘completed’ if we have your certificate.

If the status field says pending, we either do not have your ethics form or have not yet sent it to NAR. GCAR pushes information to NAR monthly. As 2024 unfolds, we expect to receive many ethics certificates. Therefore, check your status the month following your submission to GCAR. If members have questions regarding this process, please call the office at 518-464-0191.
