Code of Ethics New

Course Description

This course is NOT approved by NAR. The course does contain the NAR mandated ethics topics, but it is up to the discretion of your Board or Association to decide if this course will fulfill your NAR ethics requirement. .

Course Description

This module introduces the student to some of the general ideas and theories that help make up our concept of ethical judgment. This provides a background for a detailed discussion of professional real estate ethics, framed in terms of the NAR ® Code of Ethics. In this module, we will frequently refer to the NAR®’s Code of Ethics as “the Code of Ethics” or “the Code.

With a basic understanding of ethics and a clear idea of the requirements imposed by the NAR ® Code of Ethics, the student will then explore the steps of the ethical decision – making process and the ways in which ethical conduct contributes to better business practices.

This module includes the following lessons.

  • Introduction to Ethics
  • The NAR®’s Code of Ethics, Part One
  • The NAR®’s Code of Ethics, Part Two
  • How Professional Standards Are Enforced Through a Local Board or Association of REALTORS®
  • Ethical Conduct and Better Business Practices

The module also contains a sixth lesson, which is a practice lesson. It presents real – world dilemmas and concrete applications of the information presented in the rest of the course. As the student completes this module, he or she should try to develop a broad picture of professional real estate ethics and how they fit into the larger practice of real estate; the last lesson will help with this project by presenting comprehensive content questions, practice problems and case studies.
