What Our Members are Saying?

I'm a journalist and sometimes help my employer with research. I have fallen in love with the Association 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 every day religiously, in particular, to read their daily articles.

%MCEPASTEBIN%

I enrolled in the CIRS Certification course to get credentials that helped me find freelance research jobs. I assumed I knew everything about Internet research, and I didn't need to learn anything further and only required a certificate. My assumptions were incorrect, and I discovered how ignorant I was about various topics. Anyone who believes they can conduct online research without proper training is in for a rude awakening. Taking the CIRS training is a skill everyone should have for professional online research.

The course I took was comprehensive and well-structured in terms of the curriculum; they covered a lot of material to ensure that anyone interested in conducting professional research had a strong understanding of search engines. Although I am not a technical person, I have used research in various aspects of my professional career. The CIRS program taught me how to build complex search engine queries in a practical manner and how to use Google Advanced Search, various search tools, and methods that helped me become a Certified Research Specialist.
