The National Association of REALTORS® GRI designation (Graduate, REALTOR® Institute) can help you attract new clients and increase your business. When proudly displaying your GRI Designation, you’ll be recognized by both colleagues and clients as an outstanding real estate professional.
✓ More convenient than ever
You may now take online GRI courses through Continuing Ed Express, or live GRI classes through Minnesota Association of REALTORS®—or a combination of courses from both—and you can complete them in any order.
✓ Earn CEs while you earn your GRI designation
There are 15 required courses, and you’ll choose 5 elective courses from a variety of choices. Each course awards you 3 GRI credits toward the total of a minimum of 60 credits needed to earn your GRI designation. And you’ll get a bonus: each course is also approved for Minnesota real estate continuing education credits, at no additional charge.
✓ GRI is a lifetime designation, with no annual fee
GRI is the only NAR designation with state-specific content and the only one which does not require a yearly fee. You pay a one-time application fee upon completion of your courses and you hold the designation for life. People can search for GRI designees on the Minnesota Association of Realtors website.
Begin by reviewing the following three areas to determine which courses you need for your GRI designation:
Follow the below simple steps:
Our ordering system does not permit students to purchase a course which has been previously purchased. If you would like to re-take a course for GRI credit only, please contact us. This GRI-only version will NOT count for CE credit, but for GRI credit only.
If you see a course listed on MNR’s course requirements list with a slightly different name than what is on our current CE course list, contact us to verify whether or not it qualifies.
Contact Minnesota REALTORS® (MNR) if you have questions about classroom GRI courses, your GRI status, and additional information about how to fulfill the GRI requirements.
