All REALTORS® must complete the Code of Ethics training through NAR by December 31, 2018. 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.

If taking the online training, both the free course or the paid CE course will satisfy the requirement.
