The New GRI Format

The new format for the Georgia GRI Program has begun! 

To earn your GRI designation under the new format, you must earn 120 credits within a five-year period. These credits are earned by completing the three Core Courses, the Required Electives and the Open Electives.

  • Core Courses – 36 credits 

Click on the course name for more information about each GRI Core Course. (You may take these courses in any order.)

You Can Bundle Your GRI Core Courses for a GAR Scholarship.  For GRI Core Courses ("Risk Management," "Skill Building," and "Systems and Tools") taken in the same calendar year, you may combine the tuition fees and apply for one scholarship for the total tuition amount. The Scholarship Application Deadline will be determined based on the completion date of the last GRI Core Course taken during that calendar year in which you are applying for a scholarship. For additional GAR Scholarship information, click here.  

Sales Post-License Credit (click here for more details) - Combine the two GRI Core Courses of "Risk Management" and "Skill Building" and earn Sales Post-License credit instead of CE credit for each individual course. (In-class exam required - passing score of 75% or higher.)

Code of Ethics Requirement - Each two-day GRI Core Course ("Risk Management" or "Skill Building") will satisfy your NAR Code of Ethics membership requirement!
