Expectation of ongoing competency development

An expectation that members of an association or organisation will engage in ongoing competency development. 


The Australian Market and Social Research Association (AMSRA)

Some professional associations have expectations of ongoing competency development linked to maintenance of accreditation. The Australian Market and Social Research Association (AMSRA) requires members with the credential “Qualified Practising Market Researcher (QPMR)” to submit a PD diary each year outlining PD activities – and this must include 1 AMSRS seminar on ethics/industry standards/legislative requirements.
