Who Reports My CE Hours to LREC?

The CE certificates you receive after classes hold lots of information! It can be difficult to know who is responsible for reporting those CEs to LREC when, for example, you take a class at NOMAR taught by a title attorney.  Did NOMAR put on the class, or did the title company?

There are two ways you can find out.

1. Look closely at your certificate. At the bottom, you'll see "Certified By [Name] for [Company and Address]." If it says Jena Giardina for NOMAR, you'll know that

NOMAR put on the class and is responsible for reporting your hours to the LREC - even if a title company attorney taught the class.  If it says another person's name for, say, a title company, you'll know that the title company put on the class and is responsible for reporting your credit hours to the LREC.

2. Check the LREC website. Go to http://www.lrec.state.la.us/licensee-search/, put your name in, and view your education record. You'll see the name of the date completed, the course title, and the provider.  The provider listed is who reported your credit hours to the LREC.

In order to assist tornado victims who are displaced due to damages to their homes, we are asking that you send us available units for lease. Please send along with the address and location of the property, rental price, your contact info and the shortest term that you will accept on a lease. Some are in need to rent short term as they are working on home repairs and may be able to get back in their homes more quickly. Others may need to lease a unit for a longer term. Please submit any units or complexes that are available for rent immediately. We will provide this list to Ellen Lee, Director of Housing Policy and Community Development, City of New Orleans. Thank you for your assistance.  Email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

NAR Changes Ethics Requirements - New 2 Year Cycle (2017-2018)

NAR mandates that Code of Ethics training be completed once per cycle by all its members.  In previous years, those cycles have been 4 years long. The new cycle began January 1, 2017, and is two years long. Therefore, all NAR members must complete Code of Ethics training between January 2017 and December 2018.

NOMAR already has several Code of Ethics classes scheduled throughout 2017, with more to come. You can find classes on NOMAR's online calendar.

Remember - if you take your Code of Ethics training with a provider other than NOMAR, NOMAR does not receive notification of your completion, so please submit your Code of Ethics training certificate from the provider to us as soon as possible. You can fax it to (504) 888-1812 or email it to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
