No, it does not. These are two separate classes. If you are a REALTOR member you are required to take a Code of Ethics class every two years in order to maintain your Realtor membership status. The Core Class is a license requirement that meets 6 hours of the 16 hours required by the state of Tennessee every two years from your original license date to maintain your license.
The Code of Ethics is a Realtor membership requirement that must be taken once every two years. Realtors® (including members who are Appraisers) are required to take the NAR Code of Ethics class. It is not a required class to maintain your license but you can receive continuing education credits that go toward your 16 hour license requirement when you take this class.
