All REALTORS® must take Code of Ethics training before December 31, 2018 (if you haven't already). All REALTORS® must complete two-and-a-half hours of Code of Ethics training within each cycle.  You have several options (see below) to satisfy your required training.

Can't remember if you've already taken the NAR Code of Ethics?  You can log in to your member portal page to verify your member profile or call us at 1-800-748-7053. 


WR CODE OF ETHICS WEBINARS

This unique course was developed by Terry Eccles-Pettet, part of our WR faculty crew, to guide students through the REALTOR® Code of Ethics and apply the articles to real-life real estate situations that brokers see every day. Terry relies on her years of experience as a Broker and Designated Broker and covers a series of case studies that illustrate common, and not so common, Ethics violations REALTORS® face.  Terry teaches her class with humor, passion, and energy and students consistently leave with "food for thought" as they ethically maneuver though real estate transactions.

CODE & CORE DEMYSTIFIED

We receive daily questions regarding the difference between CORE & CODE. Admittedly, it can be confusing and we hope to help clarify things a bit.

CODE:

All REALTOR® members are required to complete the REALTOR® Code of Ethics training every 2 calendar years. This is a REALTOR® membership requirement and the current cycle ends December 31st 2018. If you take this as a class with clock hour approval it can be applied to your license renewal requirement as part of your 30-hour total.

CORE:

All Washington real estate licensees (to include REALTORS®) are required to complete 30-hours of approved continuing education, to include a 3–hour CORE Course (aka Current trends and issues in residential/commercial real estate in Washington). This is a Department of Licensing requirement and is also on a 2-year cycle based on your date of licensure.


In a nutshell, CORE is not CODE. CORE is a requirement through the State of Washington; and CODE is a requirement for REALTOR® membership.

The easiest way to make sure you’re satisfying the requirement for your real estate license and REALTOR® membership is to take CORE
and CODE every other year … plus other classes too for a total of 30-hours
