KREEF: new name, expanded programming

The Kentucky Real Estate Education Foundation (KREEF) is changing its name to the Kentucky REALTOR® Institute (KRI). Check out the website today to view the new logo and get more information about the name change. In addition, to the name change, a fresh, new website is in the works to better serve real estate professionals and those interested in getting started in a real estate career.



KRI provides a comprehensive selection of education including classroom CE, online CE, designation courses, pre- and post-licensing and GRI programming to meet the needs of every student. Call today to see what we have to offer or just check the website (the new address is

The selection of online offerings has recently expanded to include video-based courses to cover both CE, post-licensing (PLE) and GRI credit. The Keynote series of online courses feature the top instructors from across the country at a very affordable cost. Some courses also include ethics credit which is now required every two years (the current cycle is 2017 – 2018).

A big change going forward is the GRI program (GRI 100 – 600) covers all the required PLE hours. To help new licensees gain these hours, KRI has made an effort to expand the number of GRI courses being offered and increase the number of locations where the courses are held. This year, the number of GRI courses being offered is the most in the history of the program. If you want to start the coursework to earn the most popular national designation in real estate, there has never been a better time than now. Also, if you already have the GRI designation, but want to retake a course for all the updates and to earn CE credit, a discount is offered to allow you to audit the courses you want.

And finally, KRI makes available several scholarships to help assist with costs associated with education. There are three types – GRI, college/post-secondary education and pre-licensing. To apply, click here and download the application and learn more about what each scholarship covers.
