"The Code of Ethics, Our Promise of Professionalism"

All REALTOR  and REALTOR-ASSOCIATE  members are required to attend a 3 hour Code of Ethics Training program ONCE EVERY 4 YEARS (Currently 1/1/2013 - 12/31/2016).

In addition, all REALTORS  and REALTOR-ASSOCIATES  must complete 12 hours of NJ Continuing Education by June 30, 2017 - 6 of the 12 must be core credits, and 2 of those 6 core MUST be in ethics.

For those agents who have NOT taken an OCBR-approved NAR Quadrennial Ethics class since 1/1/2013, we will be offering a class that not only fulfills this obligation, but also gives you the required credits toward the next CE cycle (2 Ethics + 1 Core!!)

We currently have 2 dates available: August or October.

$5.00 Member price ~ $10 Non-OCBR

Approved Quadrennial Ethics Training

Each individual Board/Association must review any ethics courses taken by its members. To that end, not all NJ CE-approved ethics classes qualify for the NAR Quadrennial Ethics requirement for the Ocean County Board of REALTORS .


OCBR Ethics Courses
NJR  ACE ethics course
The CE Shop
Mulroy School of Real Estate
Caplan School of Real Estate

Many agents have submitted documentation from McKissock, but after a thorough review of their course, it was determined that it does not fulfill the minimum requirement for the 2.5 hour NAR Quadrennial Ethics. 

Please call the Board office with questions regarding your ethics training/documentation.
