Frequently Asked Questions about the Insights Professional Certifications from the Insights Association

  • If I earn one of these certifications, do I have to periodically take a test or complete more courses?

    No. Topic certifications do not require ongoing continuing education credits (you earn it, you keep it).

  • Do I have to attend courses in real-time?

    Nope. You can choose either to take these courses on-demand (24/7 access through the Research Rockstar Training Portal) or join your peers in our instructor-led classes taught in a virtual classroom. Or do some of both! We're biased, but we think the real-time classes are a lot of fun!

  • Are there tests?

    Yes, to complete each course, there is an online assessment of typically 10 to 15 questions. This helps us make sure the curriculum is allowing our students to meet the learning objectives. If the student does not pass, they get a second chance. If they still do not pass, they will need to take the course again. Most courses also have required assignments, which prepare the student to complete the final assessment successfully.
