Code of Ethics
NAR Code of Ethics Requirements
The Code of Ethics forms the foundation of membership in MIBOR. Adherence to the 17 Articles of the Code of Ethics distinguishes REALTORS® from real estate licensees. The Code spells out a higher standard of professional behavior in three categories; Duties to Customers and Clients; Duties to the Public, and Duties to Other REALTORS®. Upon joining MIBOR, all REALTOR® members agree to the duties and obligations of the Code, and thereby are subject to sanction if found to be in violation of the Articles of the Code of Ethics. Training on the Code is included in your New Member Orientation session. NAR also requires training on the Code for REALTORS® every two years. MIBOR reminds members of this obligation and provides training classes.
All REALTORS® must attend a class on the Code of Ethics every three years as a duty of membership. The deadline for the current two-year window is December 31, 2021. Failure to comply with this requirement could result in a loss of membership.
Satisfying your requirement:
REALTORS® who have joined MIBOR since January 1, 2019, have met this requirement by attending the Code of Ethics portion of New Member Orientation.
REALTORS® who have joined MIBOR prior to January 1, 2019, will need to have completed a class on the Code of Ethics (and must provide MIBOR with a certificate of completion) by December 31, 2020, chosen from one of these options:
- MIBOR sponsored Code of Ethics courses. None available at this time.
- Online through NAR - Members may take this class through NAR on Realtor.org (Code of Ethics Training). Please note: the free course does not include Indiana Continuing Ed credits. You may select to take the course offering CE at an additional cost.
- Attendance at a class offered by another education provider if the class meets the required learning objectives and has been taught by a certified continuing education instructor. Members must submit a certificate of completion to MIBOR in order to receive credit for the class.
- Attendance at a class held by NAR, IAR, MIBOR or other REALTOR® Associations, which has been determined to meet the learning objectives required by NAR.
If a class has been taken from a provider other than MIBOR, a certificate of completion must be submitted to MIBOR in order to receive credit. Follow the link below to send or upload your certificate.
Continuing Education Credits
Your licensure continuing education requirements are separate from the NAR Code of Ethics Requirements. Follow the link below to learn about these requirements and resources for CE credits.
