International Institute for Procurement and Market Research (IIPMR) offers online certification programs in Market Research. There are three levels of certification:
1. Certified Research Analyst (CRA) - This is for newbies
2. Certified Research Expert (CRE) - This is for folks with 1 year of relevant work experience
3. Certified Research Professional (CRP) - It is for people with 3 years of relevant work experience.
IIPMR has members from more than 54+ countries and from top companies such as IBM, Accenture, Wipro, Infosys, Bayer etc. After you complete all the modules you are expected to score a minimum of 70% in the online exam. The CRA, CRE and CRP can later be used as designations after your name just like a Ph.d.
