Elective Alabama GRI Courses – 24 GRI hours

In order to complete the GRI designation, students have 3 options to earn 24 hours of credit:


 

OPTION 1: Transaction Credit

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,

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.
