NAR requires that all REALTORS® complete a refresher Code of Ethics training course once every 3 years. GRAR policy calls for all members to complete the training in the same calendar year. Collectively, all GRAR members last completed the training in 2019. That means that we must now all complete the training in 2022.

Exemptions: Members who hold the REALTOR® Emeritus or Life Membership status are exempt.

We would encourage you to take advantage of NAR’s free online training, but if you prefer a classroom setting, GRAR will be offering a handful of in-person sessions as well.

Thank you to ATA National Title Group for sponsoring!
