Welcome! MSPA North America has built what we believe to be one of the most comprehensive resources available to help individuals learn about mystery shopping and to get access to mystery shopping opportunities.
MSPA-NA University Regional Training Conferences (Video Shopping-I and Video Shopping-II)
While these educational modules will continue to be offered at MSPA-NA ShopperFest as part of the MSPA-NA University curriculum, we will also be bringing the popular courses to a select group of cities across the country throughout 2015.
More industries and MSP companies are requesting and embracing hidden video shopping. There are logistics and legalities to be aware of to both protect your own interests and to help you provide the best possible video shop results that you can, and thereby earn you more work at some of the industry’s highest pay rates.
MSPA-NA Video Shopping-I
covers the basic tenants of conducting hidden video mystery shops, particularly in the industries of new homes, multi-family (apartment) homes, automotive and education. You’ll learn about client expectations, camera positioning, common errors and the laws surrounding the recording and use of hidden video. Passage of a written exam is required to become certified in Video Shopping-I.
MSPA-NA Video Shopping-II
is a practical hands-on lab in which students role play and experiment with hidden video equipment in order to master the use of, and receive feedback on, their demonstrated handling of the equipment. Students must submit a sample video shop in order to become MSPA-NA Video Shopping-II certified. Students are encouraged to bring their own equipment if they have it, but it is not a requirement of the courses.
MSPA-NA video certifications are the only industry certifications recognized officially by MSPA-NA and listed in the MSPA-NA Shopper Database.
