Code of Ethics

Realtor® Membership & Florida License Renewal

Code of Ethics course completion is a Realtor® association membership requirement mandated by the National Association of Realtors® (NAR). Effective in 2018, the State of Florida also includes completion of an ethics course as a licensing renewal requirement.

Regardless of when your license expires, all NEFAR Realtor® members must take an approved ethics class within the time frame established by NAR to maintain your Realtor® association membership, and also in accordance with the 2018 State of Florida real estate education licensing law to renew and maintain an active Florida real estate license. Compliance deadlines are:

DBPR Requirement:

  • If your standard renewal date is March 30: all education requirements (including ethics) must be met prior to that date.
  • If your standard renewal date is Sept. 30: all education requirements (including ethics) must be met prior to that date.

NAR Requirement:

  • Due Dec. 31 (every three years – example: end of 2021, end of 2024, etc.)
    Regardless of your license expiration date! To maintain membership in a Realtor® association, you are required to complete an approved ethics course during every three-year Code of Ethics requirement cycle.
  • You must submit proof of ethics completion to, prior to the end of the current NAR Code of Ethics cycle to stay compliant with this NAR policy.

Please note: The 45 Hour Salesperson Post-licensing and 14 HR License renewal courses DO include ethics. The 60 CE Hour Broker Post-licensing DOES NOT include Ethics.
