Certification Objectives

CIRS Certification Learning Objectives

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.

CIRS certification objective is to educate and train online researchers that now form a significantly large group of people involved in online research work. Ironically, while the Internet Research work has been going on for many years, an “Internet Research Specialist” is considered a fairly new occupation that has yet to make its way into formal libraries of new job description today. As a consequence of its newness, there is no structured curriculum on its education and training. AIRS is the first and only certification that meets this challenge by offering CIRS certification program – CIRS has thus far the most comprehensive curriculum and a well rounded subject matter that fulfils the industry requirements.
