The Marketing Research and Intelligence Association's Institute for Professional Development (MRIA-IPD) has continuously offered a multitude of courses across Canada and endeavours to continue to do so, as in-person, group-based learning provides an irreplaceable experience.

Our courses fall into one of two main categories:
"Core" or "Professional Development." (PD)

Core courses:
The twelve courses in this category are those that comprise the professional education path to the Certified Marketing Research Examination (CMRE.) These courses range in topic and complexity, but when viewed as a whole, represent a diverse and critical wealth of knowledge for any individual who wishes to be recognized as a Certified Marketing Research Professional (CMRP.) These courses are, not surprisingly, quite marketing research related.

Professional Development courses:
Professional Development courses comprise everything else that MRIA-IPD offers as a course. PD courses are generally higher-order in terms of complexity and may be better suited to individuals with mild to extensive experience in their field, or who have already attained the CMRP designation. At times, MRIA-IPD offers PD courses that are more universal in nature, regardless of field or experience
