    The REEA 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 REEA DREI designation will exhibit a mastery of subject matter, proven presentation ability, relevant experience, and superior teaching skills.

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