Mandatory Ethics Training
Upon joining RSCK, all REALTOR® members are required to complete the free online New Member Code of Ethics course from the National Association of REALTOR® within sixty (60) days. A new member who has completed the New Member Code of Ethics Orientation shall not be required to complete additional ethics training until the next two year cycle.
Existing REALTOR® members, including Appraisers, are required to complete a minimum of 2.5 hours of approved Code of Ethics training every two years as a refresher in order to remain a REALTOR® member. This has nothing to do with having a real estate license, but some courses do offer CE credit as a side benefit of taking the course. The current cycle is January 1, 2017 thru December 31, 2018.

**Consequences for Not Completing the Mandated NAR Code of Ethics Requirement**
If the mandated NAR Code of Ethics requirement is not completed by the deadline of each cycle; RSCK, KAR and NAR memberships will be suspended on January 1st of the very next year. If still not completed within first two months of the next year, membership will be terminated on March 1st.
In the event of a REALTOR® Broker’s suspension of membership, the memberships of all REALTOR® agents under his or her office will also become suspended. Further, upon a broker’s termination of membership, the same will apply to his or her agents’ REALTOR® memberships.
If a REALTOR® agent’s membership is terminated, that agent’s Broker will incur a personal dues increase for each non-member salesperson affiliated with their company for that agent’s failure to remain an active REALTOR® member licensed under a REALTOR® Broker. This is in accordance with the RSCK Bylaws and under the REALTOR® dues formula.
Once a terminated REALTOR® who is in default of meeting the mandated NAR Code of Ethics requirement has completed the course, he or she will qualify for reinstatement of membership. However, please note that a reinstatement fee will apply.
