We're always looking for innovative speakers and trainers to complement our education program which delivers strategic instruction in the areas of:
Marketing & Business Building
Essential Technology & Multimedia Tools
Running a Real Estate Office
Professional Standards & Leadership Development
Our mission involves delivering first-rate training and resources to our REALTOR® members. If you've got what it takes to meet this challenge, please complete an Education Program Submission Form.
Each year Orange County REALTORS® offers over 700 real estate-related classes to keep our members a step ahead. Here you’ll find information on how to sign up for classes and seminars, how to renew your license and meet continuing education requirements, and how to take advantage of professional development opportunities that will expand your expertise as a real estate practitioner.
Reservations for Orange County REALTORS®-sponsored courses that require payment will not be processed until payment is received. All members are encouraged to register for Orange County REALTORS®-sponsored classes and special events through My Account. The importance of online registration is four-fold:
Detailed information about course instructors is provided online. Not all classes held at Orange County REALTORS®' offices are sponsored by Orange County REALTORS®—you may be required to register though another provider. In this case, My Account will give you that individual’s or company’s contact information to accomplish this.
The most current class information is available only online. If a course is sold out, you’ll see it listed as “full.” Or, if it is cancelled, you will be notified electronically.
Registering online is the easiest way to pay for classes and will ensure you have a confirmed spot—especially when our phone lines are busy or you would like to register on the weekend!
Orange County REALTORS®' No-Show Policy applies to most classes. When you register online, you are presented with a notice that failure to cancel within a specified time-frame will incur a $20 penalty. Online registration allows us to plan ahead for adequate seating and order materials for you, if needed. Remember, when you are a “no-show” you may be preventing another member from attending a desired class.
If you must cancel or reschedule your reservation (and you’ve already paid for the class), a refund may be issued if notification is received by email or in writing prior to the start of the class. Please contact Education Director, Cassie Cardenas via email: firstname.lastname@example.org or fax cancellations to (949) 951-3012. Sorry, cancellations involving a refund request cannot be accepted over the phone.
If you’ve registered for a free Orange County REALTORS®-Sponsored class, you may be able to cancel your registration online via My Account.
Orange County REALTORS® reserves the right to cancel or reschedule any course. If cancellation occurs, Orange County REALTORS® will issue a full refund. In the case that a course is rescheduled, Orange County REALTORS® will send you immediate notification and transfer your reservation (including payments) to the new date. If the new date does not work for your schedule, you will be issued a full refund.
Code of Ethics Training - Mandated by NAR
Existing REALTOR® members must complete 2.5 hours of ethics training, meeting specific learning objectives and criteria, within two-year cycles. REALTORS® who have completed the required ethics training within a two-year cycle in one association shall not be required to complete any further ethics training for that same training cycle if the REALTOR® becomes or is a member of another association.
All REALTORS® must complete the Code of Ethics training through NAR by December 31, 2020. Failure to complete training during any cycle will lead to suspension of membership for the January and February immediately following the cycle deadline, with termination of membership starting March 1 after the cycle deadline.
January 1, 2019 to December 31, 2020
January 1, 2021 to December 31, 2022
If taking the online training, both the free course or the paid CE course will satisfy the requirement. Learn more.
