MARKETING AT RETAIL CERTIFICATION PROGRAM (MaRC)
POPAI's MaRC program is a certification and continuing education program aimed at keeping individuals current on technology, methods, and research in the in-store marketing industry.

What Does Being MaRC Certified Signify?
How Do You Receive MaRC Credentials?
To become MaRC certified, first complete the attached registration form and send to email@example.com.
Earn 27 credits, nine in each of the three categories: Strategic, Tactical, and Take Action. Attending one Master’s Event will earn you 18 credits. Credits are earned by attending and participating in qualifying POPAI industry events including webinars and online classes. However, you can only earn nine out of the required 27 credits online. The remaining 18 credits must be earned through attending and/or participating in POPAI’s industry events.
Once you have earned 27 credits, complete the application to take the MaRC Exam online. Once you pass the exam, you will be MaRC certified for three years. The successful candidate can then add the MaRC designation to his/her business cards and their name will be featured on the POPAI website and displayed at GlobalShop. Continue to take nine credits every three years to maintain your certification. The continuing education credits ensure that you are always at the forefront of the industry and armed with the latest knowledge.
After earning all 27 Credits, you're eligible to take the Marketing at Retail Certification exam online. It can be taken any time during the year and consists of 100 multiple choice questions. Once the enrollee passes, he/she can identify themselves as MaRC’s on business cards and letterhead.
