Often an organization’s “forecaster” must grapple with many technical and organizational issues without the benefit of training in forecasting. The International Institute of Forecasters (IIF) offers a forecasting certification program with the goal of facilitating improved forecasting practices in organizations. The certification program brings benefits for both the individual forecaster and the company that employs certified experts：
- Ensures that your business forecasting is state-of-the-art. The certification is awarded to experts who demonstrate good understanding and use of the forecasting process, methods and best practices.
- By employing IIF certified forecasters this guarantees their level of knowledge and skills, simplifying the creation of a team of forecasting experts that can offer to your organization a unique competitive advantage.
- The result is superior, transparent and credible forecasts that can improve decision making and operations company wide.
