The Greater Baton Rouge Association of REALTORS® greatly values professional development through education.
Members will have multiple opportunities yearly to meet all National Association of REALTORS®, Louisiana REALTORS®, Louisiana Real Estate Commission, and any local education requirements.
For Upcoming Education, Visit the GBRAR Calendar
Tracking Your Courses
The GBRAR is only able to track courses that you have taken from GBRAR. If you have taken courses from another vendor (online, private provider, etc), you will need to contact that vendor directly. You may always view the history of all education classes that you have completed with GBRAR though our Internet Member Services. Simply log in to your account and select “Education History” under the section labeled “Other Services.” You can also view your history of LREC approved classes online at https://lrec.gov/.
This class is required of every new member of GBRAR. These classes are now available in-person AND online, and the link to the classes will be emailed to new members when they complete the GBRAR membership application and pay their membership dues.
NAR Ethics Training
NAR requires every member to complete two and a half (2.5) hours of training on the Code of Ethics every 3 years.
GBRAR offers the required Ethics classes and members can complete the Ethics class online through NAR.
LREC Continuing Education Requirements
The Louisiana Real Estate Commission (LREC) requires every licensee to complete 12 hours of continuing education every year. Four (4) hours are in a REQUIRED subject that changes yearly and the remaining hours are elective.
*Note that the LREC sets the requirements for all real estate licensees, and all licensees must meet LREC requirements, including annual education hours, to maintain active sales licenses. GBRAR’s required membership education does not supersede the LREC education requirements.
Cancellation and Class Attendance Policy
Notice of registration cancellation must be provided 24 hours before the start time of the class to avoid a $25 no-show fee. You must arrive prior to the class start time, and attend while class is in session. Those who fail to arrive on time or attend will forfeit the class fee and will not receive continuing education credit.
