QRCA Advance Program

QRCA Advance Program

New for 2019:

Members can earn one point for an educational endeavor that might not be directly related to qualitative research, but still enhances one’s business or practice.  Examples include academic coursework in other fields, or even an improv course.  Submit these courses via the QRCA site for approval.

SEE YOUR MEMBER ADVANCE STATUS HERE



The QRCA Advance program is elevating professionalism in the qualitative research industry by recognizing those members who demonstrate commitment to the profession by participating in educational programs.

QRCA members earn Advance status by participating in QRCA and non-QRCA educational activities.  Members must earn 12 points in a calendar year to be eligible for status for the following year. 

Members who earn Advance status will have their status noted in their Find a Researcher profile and have the ability to use the Advance badge to promote their status as a professional with a commitment to ongoing learning.
