Step 1 

  • To search for an available course, click here. To search by instructor, click here. Once you have decided what class you want to offer, contact the instructor to determine a class date / time.
  • Designation / Certification Courses: Contact an instructor that you would like to teach the course to determine a class date / time. For a list of NAR designation and certification courses, click here.
  • GRI Core Courses: For information on hosting a GRI Core Course, click here.

Step 2

  • Once the instructor and you have agreed upon a class date and time, complete an online course request. If the course is a regular Continuing Education (CE class), click the “Partners in Education Request” link. If the course is a designation or certification course other than GRI, click the “Designation Course” link. If the course is for a GRI Core Course, click the “GRI Core Course” link.

Step 3 

  • An “Instructor Request Submitted” confirmation email will be sent to you.

Step 4 

  • GAR will send an instructor agreement to the instructor. This agreement must be signed and returned to GAR. Otherwise, no continuing education (CE) credit will be available through GAR and the class will not be scheduled.

Step 5

  • Once the instructor agreement has been signed and returned to GAR, you will receive a “Class Approved” email and GAR will post the class details on our Upcoming Classes website (click here) — unless a sponsor requests otherwise.

Step 6

  • The class is official and you may begin advertising the class. In addition, you may begin accepting class registrations if you are handling that process. Otherwise (if requested), registrations will be accepted through our class registration website.
