A Great Way to Enhance Your Career

The Virginia REALTOR® Institute Program curriculum consists of 10 courses that each student must complete successfully in order to earn the Graduate, REALTOR® Institute (GRI) designation. Eight classes are hosted by local associations across the state,  and two classes are available online. Online courses are available for immediate enrollment. The full schedule and description of courses can all be found right here.

Students working towards the GRI designation have the additional benefit of obtaining continuing education and/or post license credit through their coursework. The course curriculum contains 30 hours of post license (PL) credits. That adds up to a great value… first year REALTORS® can complete their PL requirements and earn a designation at the same time.


Current students may be curious about their progress towards completion of the GRI designation. Want to see your GRI Class Summary? Click here to see the courses you need, or contact us with specific questions.

NOTE: Current GRI students whose five year completion deadline was in 2014, 2015, or 2016, have been granted an extension to 2019. The Virginia REALTOR® Institute Program has equivalencies for the ABR and SRS designations, as they correlate directly with the RI 504: Working with Buyers and the RI 505: Working with Sellers courses. There are no equivalencies for other designations or license types.
