Biennial Code of Ethics Requirements

Mandatory Ethics Training All REALTORS® are required to complete a minimum of 2.5 hours of approved Code of Ethics training per two year cycle. The current cycle is January 1, 2019 through December 31, 2020. Failure to complete the required ethics training shall be considered a violation of a membership duty for which REALTORS® membership shall be suspended until such time as the required training is completed. To satisfy this requirement you have a few options:

  • SMAR's ethics classes approved for CE (Continuing Education) covers both the MD COMAR Ethics and the REALTOR® Code of Ethics.  Click here to view the schedule.
  • The National Association of REALTORS® (NAR) provides an online course for FREE.  There are two different courses - one for new members and one for existing members.  You may access both here and then choose the applicable course.  (Note: The NAR online course is not approved for MD CE.)
