It’s important to note, GNIAR and the Multiple Listing Service are separate entities and require different education requirements for joining.
JOINING THE ASSOCIATION (GNIAR)
New members of GNIAR are required to complete GNIAR’s New Member Orientation within 4 months of joining. New Member Orientation is made up of 5 classes GNIAR Board of Directors strongly felt were important for new members to complete.
- Code of Ethics
- Listing & Purchasing Forms
- Advertising & Fair Housing
- Association Overview
Option 1 - Take GNIAR's New Member Orientation
This requirement can be fulfilled during GNIAR’s Two-Day New Member Orientation held on a bimonthly basis. These are two consecutive days in a row where you will complete all 5 classes. Register for each class on the calendar page.
Option 2 - Complete Online through RECP.org with Similar Classes
We understand many of our members have other obligations making two days of live classes difficult to fit into their schedule. As an alternative, new members can choose to take online classes through RECP.org which offer similar classes to GNIAR.
