Morning Session:

Important post-licensing changes

This is a reminder — but an important one — about post-licensing curriculum changes. (It will mostly affect new real estate licensees, but brokers need to remember it.)

The PL curriculum is changing from three tracks (residential, property management, commercial) to a single-track system.

  • The old system will be in place until December 31, 2013.
  • The new system will be available starting July 1, 2013.

The overlap is what’s important.

You know you must take 30 hours of PL education within a year of getting your license. You must take those 30 hours under the current system or the new system — you cannot mix them.

Upgrade yourself with a GRI designation

  1. Realtors® who earn their GRI designation earn an average of twice as much as those without a designation.
  2. Many of the courses you take for your GRI count toward your post-licensing and continuing education requirements.
  3. What are you waiting for?

The Graduate, Realtor® Institute is the most popular designation among successful Realtors®. While your licensing courses and most PL teaches you how to manage your risk and complete transactions, GRI teaches you the skills you need to really be successful in your field.
