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 the

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 the

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.

TREC Education REQUIREMENTS:

Sales Apprentice Education (SAE) requirements for First Time Renewals
  • 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.


Active sales agent license renewal requirements
  • Complete 18 hours of approved Continuing Education (CE) courses
    • 8 hours of TREC Legal Update I and II; and
    • 10 hours of elective CE
  • 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 as part of your 18 hours of CE.
  • If TREC records do not reflect completion of CE requirements at the time you submit your renewal application, you must pay a $200 CE Deferral Fee, or renew in inactive status. Payment of the CE Deferral Fee allows you to remain active for an additional 60 days from your expiration date to complete CE requirements. To receive the additional 60 days to complete any outstanding CE, the CE Deferral fee must be paid before the expiration date of your license. Deferral does not apply to sales agents renewing for the first time.
  • If your license expires, you cannot renew until CE requirements are met and you have paid the CE Deferral Fee. If you complete CE more than 60 days after your license expiration date, you will be subject to an additional late reporting fee of $250.
  • If you have not submitted your fingerprints for TREC with a previous renewal or application, you must be fingerprinted for a criminal background check.

 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.
