For all subsequent renewals, licensees must complete the seven-hour National USPAP update course and either the four hour or seven hour course of instruction pertaining to Fair Housing and Fair Lending within their two-year license/certification period prior to renewal. Courses will be available at approved schools in the near future and may be completed and applied toward your current continuing education requirements.

NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS (NAR) ETHICS REQUIREMENT
REALTORS®, this includes appraisers as well as real estate licensees, are required to complete ethics training of not less than 2 hours, 30 minutes of instructional time within each three-year NAR® cycle (the current three-year cycle, (cycle 7), is from January 1, 2022 through December 31, 2024). The training must meet specific learning objectives and criteria established by the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR®).
The National Association of Realtors® (NAR®) has implemented a new requirement for the cycle 7 Code of Ethics Requirement. We (Local REALTOR® Associations) can only accept completion certificates from education providers that we "partner" with. That means you have to take 2.5 hours of Ethics Training through one of the following to fulfill this NAR® Ethics requirement:
To add to the confusion, 2.5 hours of "Professional Business Ethics" is one of the 6 mandatory core courses required to renew your real estate license with the New York Department of State. Some ethics courses may qualify for NYDOS CE credit, but not NAR's ethics training.. Be sure to confirm if the ethics course you are taking is approved for CE, NAR's Ethics Training, or both.
Below is a list of members of the Elmira-Corning Association of REALTORS® who have fulfilled their ethics requirement for the current cycle, (cycle 7) January 1, 2022 – December 31, 2024. If you have any questions, please call Sandy at 607-562-7035. (LAST UPDATED (03/23/2023)
