As part of your membership in The Firelands Association of REALTORS® all members are required to have an ethics class certificate on file with your local board by December 31, 2016.
This requirement includes all Appraiser Members.
REALTORS® are required to complete ethics training of not less than 2 hours, 30 minutes of instructional time within four-year cycles. The training must meet specific learning objectives and criteria established by the National Association of REALTORS®. The current four-year cycle will end Dec. 31, 2016.
If you have taken an Ethics class in the past 4 years and have a certificate that you have not sent to the state please sent it to the Board Office before December 27th to ensure we have time to record this to your member record.
Training may be completed through local REALTOR® associations or through another method, such as home study, correspondence, classroom courses, or online courses.
