Ohio Canons of Ethics



Course Description

Ohio law places responsibilities upon all real estate professionals regarding ethics and conduct. The law and the various trade association codes of ethics are similar yet not identical. As a license holder engaging in the real estate industry, you are bound by the ethics requirements found in the Ohio Canons of Ethics. Licensees must strive for individual ethical conduct and strive to maintain a high standard of ethical professionalism within the industry. The failure to abide by the Canons of Ethics can give rise to disciplinary action by the Division.

This course outlines the standards of practice expected of licensed realtors, and provides several case studies to illustrate those standards.
