    The DREI Designation

    "Distinguished Real Estate Instructor"

    This designation was created by the Real Estate Educators Association to set the standard for excellence in real estate classroom instruction.  Regulators and others can be assured that a real estate educator who has earned a DREI designation will exhibit a mastery of subject matter, proven presentation ability, relevant experience, and superior teaching skills.

    The DREI program is administered by the DREI Leadership Council which is elected by the DREI membership. The DREI designation is a classroom teaching designation that adheres to the Generally Accepted Principles of Education (GAPE) adopted by REEA.
