About AIRS Association

Primary Objectives

AIRS® works primarily for the benefits of its "Association Members" and promotes the profession of "Online Research" as a full-time occupation that requires well-structured curriculum and a formal education and training system that meets industry-backed credentialization requirements.

Background & Formation

In 2013, The Association of Internet Research Specialist (AIRS®) was formed by the volunteer Internet research professionals with a strong realization that digitized information growth demands specialized training and a unified platform.

AIRS® Value Proposition

At AIRS we believe that in any serious research work, information relevance, its accuracy and reliability takes precedence over information volume generated by Internet search result. But, due to the sheer size of the World Wide Web, and the growth of indexed web pages, finding relevant information demands very specific Internet searching skills and techniques. Learning how to build effective search queries, choosing the right search engine and navigating your way to those relevant online databases require formal training – For a modern researcher acquiring web, search skill helps minimize time to search and to filter out irrelevant and inaccurate information that turns up in a search result pages.

Becoming a “Certified Internet Research Specialist”

Ironically, while the Internet Research (or web search) work has been going on for many years, an “Internet Research Specialist” (also Web Researcher, Online Researcher) is considered a fairly new occupation that has to make its way into formal job description today. Because of its newness, there is no other structured curriculum known to us that focus on educating and training Internet research professional. AIRS® has created the very first and only formal education program and certification (CIRS®) or “Certified Internet Research Specialist”.
