W.A.R. Ethics Education Series is a Hit with REALTORS® across the Nation
From Maine to Maui, REALTORS® across the country are buying and using the video series “Ethics Made Easy” to complete Code of Ethics training requirements.
“Washington is achieving national recognition for quality education,” said W.A.R. 2001 Vice President for Education Steve Flinn. “We went right to the local associations with this product, and we now have a market base across the country while helping REALTORS® nationwide achieve the N.A.R. goal of increased ethical consciousness.”
The set of six 30-minute video tapes, produced and presented by the Washington Association of REALTORS® and featuring nationally renowned ethics instructor Oliver Frascona, fulfills the National Association of REALTORS® requirements for Code of Ethic training for both existing and new members (as outlined in the N.A.R. Professional Standards Policy Statements 47 and 48). The Department of Licensing has approved use of the tapes for three, four, and seven and one-half clock-hours, depending upon the method of delivery chosen.
The series is designed for maximum flexibility, and can be used in a classroom setting, for individual study, or as part of a professional reference library. The tapes, produced in 30-minute segments with appropriate discussion breaks for interactive exchanges after major topics, feature Frascona at his lively and entertaining best, while masterfully conveying complex material. Instructor and student manuals are included in the package, and enable instructors to customize the material for specific needs. The accompanying CD-ROM also gives local and state associations the ability to imprint the product with their own logo. The complete package sells for $299; individual tapes are available for $50 each.
“The series is selling steadily across the country, in all states and from coast to coast” reports W.A.R. Education Director Bob Corl. “We have sold more than 150 sets since
January, and the program is solidly in the black.”
Local associations in Washington State have been supplied with the “Ethics Made Easy” series. Washington REALTORS® interested in receiving ethics training should contact their local associations for course availability. The tapes are for sale via the W.A.R. education website.
