Professional Researcher Certification

The Insights Association has launched a sophisticated new online system through which all participants in the Professional Researcher Certification (PRC) program may easily manage their activity. The new system automatically tracks all aspects of an individual PRC’s account, including continuing education credits which expire on a rolling basis. Detailed account status can now be reported and managed in real time.

The Insights Association is providing PRC credit for AAPOR Short Courses from the 2017 Annual Convention, AAPOR/DC-AAPOR Short Courses and AAPOR Webinars.

Click here for more information about PRC and how to create an Insights Association Account to log your education hours.

Click here for a tutorial on logging in and viewing your credits.

AAPOR will email you the links for obtaining PRC credit after you complete the evaluation for your short course/webinar.

Don’t have a Professional Researcher Certification yet?  AAPOR Webinars may be used to qualify for the certification and to maintain the certification. For more information on the Professional Researcher Certification, please see: https://www.insightsassociation.org/advance-career/prc

Credits are available for AAPOR webinars that were presented from January 2016 onward. Please use the links below to apply credit for the webinars you have attended in the past.
