Graduate REALTOR® Institute
All New GRI
Redesigned, re-imagined, and re-structured
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.
Core Alabama GRI Courses
36 GRI Hours
36 GRI hours of core courses are required by all students.
These courses will each be 6 hours each and cover the following topics:
• Professionalism – 6 GRI hours
• Accountability and Development – 6 GRI hours
• Contracts – 6 GRI hours
• Working with Buyers – 6 GRI hours
• Working with Sellers – 6 GRI hours
• Technology – 6 GRI hours
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:
PO Box 4070
Montgomery, AL 36103-4070

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.
