Core Curriculum

The Washington State Real Estate Commission and Department of Licensing require the completion of 3 clock hours of prescribed core curriculum. This requirement went into effect June 1, 2004. Prescribed core curriculum is defined as a specific course of study, recommended by the real estate commission for approval by the director, that provides practical information on contemporary issues relating to the practice of real estate. The 3 mandatory core clock hours must be included in the 30 clock hours required for active licensees. It is important that the course you are taking states that it is the Core Curriculum as no other course counts as this course. (NO, the Code of Ethics course is not the Core Curriculum course). SWSRE offers the Core Curriculum course as a live class at least once per year. Or, you may also take it online at or any of the online real estate schools.  Remember, you must take this class every 2 years for your license renewal. We are now in the 2020-2022 two-year cycle.

NAR’s Code of Ethics

Current COE Cycle – Jan 1, 2022 – Dec 31, 2024 : Members must send CCAR their certificates in order to ensure their NAR records are updated.

NAR’s Board of Directors approved a change to the Code of Ethics training requirement, extending it from every two years to every three years.

REALTORS® are required to complete ethics training of not less than 2 hours, 30 minutes of instructional time. The training must meet specific learning objectives and criteria established by the National Association of REALTORS®. View all courses below.

Training may be completed through SWSRE or through another method, such as home study, correspondence, classroom courses, or online courses. Read the consequences for failing to complete Code of Ethics training.

Please note for new agents, you are required to attend the first scheduled New Member Orientation that occurs after your join date in order to avoid membership suspension. 2.5 Hours of New Member Orientation are dedicated towards NAR’s Code of Ethics training requirements. Your education record will be updated after you complete the training on National Association of Realtors® site.

Filing System for Certificates

We recommend setting up some sort of filling system to keep all your class certificates together in one place. A simple 2 pocket folder will do or something more elaborate will work fine too. DOL will send you a renewal form about 30 days prior to your renewal and have you sign an affidavit that you have completed the required number of clock hours. You return it to DOL with your renewal fee. You will be ahead of the game by having that folder to refer to that has all of your class certificates right there in one place so you can be sure of how many hours you have completed. Most schools charge a $25 fee to replace a lost or misplace certificate. Plus, you have to track down which school you had taken that class from and that takes time. A filing system to begin with will make your life much easier when it’s time to renew your license. Keep all of your certificates for 5 years at least in case you were to be audited.
