HERE'S HOW TO ACHIEVE THE GRI DESIGNATION...
The new GRI Program, beginning in 2014, will require students to earn 60 hours of GRI credit, reduced from the 96 required before.
In order to complete the GRI designation, students have 3 options to earn 24 hours of credit:
OPTION 1: Transaction Credit
If a student chooses to count transactions for elective credit – 1 transaction = 2 elective GRI credits Students will pay a $10 processing fee for each transaction. Students can choose to use a total of 12 transactions for elective credit totaling 24 hours for a $120 processing fee. Complete one form for each transaction. If completing multiple transaction forms, all of them can be mailed at once with total amount due ($10 per transaction) MAIL COMPLETED FORMS TO: Alabama REALTORS PO Box 4070 Montgomery, AL 36103-4070
OPTION 2: REBAC Electives
REALTORS can choose from the following REBAC certification and designation courses to complete course work:
NO LIVE COURSES CURRENTLY AVAILABLE. CHECK BACK FOR LIVE COURSES COMING SOON!
Courses are also available online at REALTOR Univeristy. Click the "Online Course Listing" below for details and pricing.
If a REALTOR currently holds an active designation or certification from this list, the elective hours will be counted toward elective requirement. NOTE: Must be in active status with REBAC.
OPTION 3: GRI Credit - If a REALTOR has taken courses in the old GRI model, those course credits will count towards elective hour requirements in the new GRI program. AAR will match hour for hour on the old program with the new. This option applies to GRI courses taken in 2010, 2011, or 2012. (Courses taken prior to 2010 do not meet current NAR requirements.)
NOTE: Options 1, 2, and 3 are not mutually exclusive and can be combined to reach the 24 hour elective requirement.
