What is TREC?
The Texas Legislature established the Texas Real Estate Commission (TREC) in 1949 to safeguard consumers in matters of real property transactions and valuation services. TREC shares staff members and resources with the Texas Appraiser Licensing and Certification Board (TALCB), established as an independent subdivision of TREC in 1991 when federal law required increased regulation of appraisals. Together TREC and TALCB oversee real estate brokerage, real property appraisals, inspections, home warranties, right-of-way services, and timeshare. The agency provides licensing, education, and complaint investigation services, as well as regulation and enforcement of state and federal laws and requirements that govern each of these areas of service to consumers in Texas.

New NAR Code of Ethics Requirement:
New 3-year Cycle Announced
All REALTORS® will have to take Code of Ethics Training
For years, Texas was able to use the TREC Ethics (Legal II) class as an equivalent for the NAR Code of Ethics requirement.
With the new changes adopted in November 2019, Texas members will NOT be able to use that equivalent to satisfy the NAR Code of Ethics training requirement effective January 1, 2020.
What this means for you:
If you did complete TREC Legal II course in 2019,
it will satisfy your NAR COE requirement
for the current cycle (until Dec 31, 2021).
If you did not complete TREC Legal II course in 2019,
you must take a qualifying COE course for the current cycle (before Dec 31, 2021) or within 30 days of completing New Member Orientation.
After the current cycle ends, all members must complete an association-approved Code of Ethics Course every 3 years.

If you wish CE Credit, be sure to select the CE option for $29.95

To ensure that you receive credit for finishing the course, please forward your proof of completion to GLAR at: firstname.lastname@example.org
If you are renewing for the first time, active or inactive, you must have a total of 270 qualifying real estate course hours, 4 hours of TREC's Legal Update I, and 4 hours of TREC's Legal Update II posted to your license record prior to submitting your renewal.
If you have been made a supervisor by your broker for six months or more, you need to take the 6-hour Broker Responsibility course to renew.
Submit qualifying course completion documents to TREC at least 10 days before renewing your license.
Qualifying credit will not be granted if you were previously given credit for a substantially similar qualifying course within a two year period.
You may not defer SAE requirements. Your license will not be renewed until you complete the required education.
