    What is the REALTOR Institute

    Developed for members of the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR) and offered through State REALTOR® Associations, the REALTOR® Institute program recognizes those who achieve the designation - Graduate REALTOR Institute (GRI),  as those real estate professionals who have made a commitment to providing a superior level of professional services to better serve and protect their clients.
    Why earn the designation?  New technology, laws, procedures and the increasing sophistication of buyers and sellers require real estate practitioners to perform with a higher level of professionalism than ever.  The coursework required to earn the GRI designation will give you the tools and knowledge you need to provide your clients superior services.  In addition, in a recent NAR Member Survey, those with a designation earned an average of 49% more that those without any designation.

    How Do I Earn My Designation?

    To earn your Graduate, REALTOR Institute (GRI) Designation, you must complete Series 100 & 200 for a total of 72 hours.  You can find each GRI series offered year round throughout the state. Each module is comprised of 6 hours of instructional time; however, different modules offer various continuing education credit hours. Those hours and their applicable categories are contained within each module outlined below.  Modules in Series 100 & 200 run from 8:30 a.m. to 3:45 p.m. with an exam immediately following the session.  For modules in Series 300 & 400 (additional broker educational hours), the time runs from 9:00 a.m. to 3:45  p.m. with an exam that also immediately follows the session.

    A passing grade of 70% is required to successfully complete each module.  If a person does not successfully pass the initial exam for a particular module, that exam may be re-taken ONE ADDITIONAL TIME, at no charge. After that, the module must be re-taken in order to successfully complete the module/series. The Series (100 through 400) may be taken in any order.  However, to obtain the GRI Designation, the 100 & 200 Series must be completed within 5 years.   Series 300 & 400 serve as additional hours for those interested in sitting for their Broker/Associate Broker exam.

    The Maryland Real Estate Commission dictates that you must be present for the entire class in order to receive continuing education credit for that class. Arriving late, returning late from a break or leaving early will jeopardize the continuing education credit.  Please note, no partial credit can be issued.  Photo ID required for entry.  For additional information on Continuing Education, please visit the Real Estate Commission's site and read "What Everyone Licenee Should Know About Continuing Education".
