NAR offers a FREE online course for existing members. The course typically takes 2.5 hours to complete. Register here
If you completed the course online via NAR, you will receive a certificate of completion once you finalize and pass the class. Nothing additional is required by the member – NAR will automatically log and account for your completion and will send VCCAR notification that you have met the requirement.
New Members
As a requirement of membership, you have 60 days to complete New Member Orientation and Code of Ethics class.
Upon completion, this fulfills the NAR Code of Ethics requirement for the current period. Staff will document your record accordingly with NAR reflecting you have met the requirement.
Very important - please note: If you take a Code of Ethics course from anyone other than VCCAR or NAR, you MUST send us a copy of your certificate of completion. This will allow us to notate your records accordingly.  I hope this helps you navigate through this process, if you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact our office for more information.
