Requirement for Code of Ethics Training
This is not a requirement for renewing your license like a mandatory/core class. It is, however, mandated by the National Association of REALTORS® so you may continue as a KCRAR member!
Code of Ethics training must be completed every 2 years (even-numbered years, i.e. 2018, 2020, etc.) to maintain your REALTOR® membership. COE is not required by the state licensing commission and is not a license renewal requirement. These are two different entities.
If you are a new member at KCRAR, you must complete the New Member Tour online program. This includes the Code of Ethics training for KCRAR members. This is your Orientation and required Code of Ethics training all in one place!
You can check your personal REALTOR® records to see whether you've taken the training. Simply login to KCRAR then click on “Your Education History” under Membership Record.
Ways to Complete the COE Training Requirement
Best Option - Free NAR online ethics class: Click COE Online. (You will need your NRDS number.) For a video tour, click COE Video Tour. While there is no CE credit for this, it’s fast, free and satisfies the COE requirement.
Take an online class for CE credit from our partner, CE Cheap (the online school for Career Education systems). Note: These online CE classes are free as a KCRAR member benefit. You must log in at KCRAR and proceed to Online CE Classes. CE Cheap will notify KCRAR and the Missouri and Kansas Real Estate Commissions when you have completed the COE course.
Take the “Behave Yourself! The Code of Ethics” class at KCRAR for elective CE license credit. Click on the KCRAR Calendar for the schedule of all KCRAR classes.
IMPORTANT NOTE: If you take the class any other way at any other school besides KCRAR/CE Cheap or the NAR online course, you must submit confirmation of completion to KCRAR. To do this you may either fax it to (913) 498-1110, e-mail to Angie Sherman or mail a copy of your certificate of completion to KCRAR - Attention: Angie Sherman, 11150 Overbrook Rd., Leawood, KS 66211.
