Code of Ethics Training

In November 2019 the National Association of REALTORS® Board of Directors approved a change to the Code of Ethics (COE) training requirement, extending it from every two years to every three years.

  • The current Cycle 7 began Jan. 1, 2022, and ends Dec. 31, 2024.

In order to meet the Code of Ethics learning objectives approved by the National Association of REALTORS®, KWAOR accepts Code of Ethics certificates from the following KWAOR approved training providers for Cycle 7:

McKissock Online CE
The CE Shop
RI School of Real Estate
Coldwell Banker Realty
Keep Me Certified
Additional Accepted Certificates*


*Can a member satisfy the training requirement by taking a course from an approved provider at an association that is not their primary board?

Yes. Consistent with current NAR policy, members who take a course at a different association of REALTORS®, will satisfy the Code of Ethics training requirement. If a member takes a course through a partnered provider of an association in their own state or a neighboring state, an association must accept it for the Code of Ethics training requirement. If a course is taken from a partnered provider outside of those limits, it is up to each local association if they choose to accept it.

Please contact CEO Linda Arcouette with any questions regarding approved Code of Ethics certificates at
