Many companies and individuals rely on research to effectively do business or make important decisions. In some cases, companies and individuals may hire an Internet researcher to do their research for them. Performing an online research is a learned skill that requires specialized training and industry recognition of a full-time profession. At AIRS® we have dedicated an education program that provides training material and a certification examination to address this new and dynamic job description of Internet Research Specialist. It is now required that professional researchers owe it to themselves to seek structured certification programs and stay in touch as new materials and new tools transform research problems from very difficult or impossible to quick and simple tasks by getting involved in a more centralized way through associations such as AIRS.
