What Our Members are Saying?

"I am a Certified Research Specialist from AIRS. The courses I took were very extensive and well laid out curriculum-wise, they covered a lot of ground in making sure that anyone who like to do professional research get a thorough understanding of search engines. I am not exactly a technical person, but I have been applying research in a various aspect of my profession. The CIRS course made me understand the true working of search engines and how they are configured and what to do exactly to extract the information we need. This is indeed a science in itself. I feel more confident in using the Internet for my information needs, and yes! I am also certified, how about that!"

"The association is a great source for finding the online information where-about. The Internet search has become skill-set that I needed to learn from my ongoing research work. I am a journalist and occasional research help for my employer. I have fallen in love with the AIRS group for what they bring to people like myself. They have a lot of information on their website for Internet information search. I visit them religiously every single day, especially to read the articles they compile on daily basis."
"I took AIRS courses to earn credentials that will help in getting freelance research work. I thought that, since I thought I know all about doing the research on the Internet, I need not learn more and I only needed a certificate. I was wrong in my assumptions, and I found out how much of the things I did not know before, I was naive. I will recommend that anyone who thinks they know research work with Internet without proper training are in for a surprise. Taking the CIRS course is a must have skill for everyone."
