NAR introduces “Commitment to Excellence” program
Free REALTOR® professionalism education course is customized to your expertise level in 10 crucial areas
The National Association of REALTORS® has introduced a new
educational program designed to enhance the professionalism of
REALTORS® across the board. It is available for free to all members.
NAR's Commitment to Excellence (C2EX) is designed to empower
REALTORS® to demonstrate their professionalism and commitment
to conducting business at the highest standards. C2EX builds upon
the Code of Ethics through an interactive self-assessment tool that
shows each REALTOR® their level of expertise in 10 elements of
professionalism (plus an extra element just for brokers): Real Estate
Law; Code of Ethics; Article 10; Advocacy; Trust & Integrity; Technology;
Privacy Safeguards; Practice Areas; Client Service; Professional
Reputation; and Broker Issues.
Based on individual results, the
program then generates customized
learning paths, recommends experiences,
and provides tools and resources to
increase knowledge and enhance skill

iPhone/iPad and Android devices, as well as laptop and desktop
systems. Learn more at nar.realtor/commitment-to-excellence or
