What Our Members are Saying?

The AofIRS is an excellent way to find information online. 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 took CIRS Certification course to earn credentials that will help me in obtaining freelance research jobs. I thought that, since I assumed I knew everything about research on the Internet, I need not learn more and I only needed a certificate. I was wrong in my assumptions, and I discovered how ignorant I was about a lot of things. I will recommend that anyone who thinks they know how to do research on the internet without proper training are in for a surprise. Taking the CIRS course is a must-have skill for everyone.

I'm a Certified Research Specialist, and the course I completed was quite comprehensive and well-structured in terms of curriculum; they covered a lot of ground in ensuring that anyone interested in conducting professional research had a good understanding of search engines. Although I am not a technical person, I have used research in numerous aspects of my career. The CIRS training helped me understand the practical approach to building complex search engine queries, Google advanced search, search tools, and techniques, which enabled me to become an Internet Research Specialist.
