Welcome to AIRS Online Training!
AIRS, working with Relias Learning, is pleased to provide access to AIRS online training for all its members and for everyone working within the world of I&R.
PLEASE NOTE THAT once you click the links below, you will access to the Relias website. The login and customer support on that site is provided by Relias and is not directly provided by AIRS.
AIRS Online Training allows staff to take courses at their own pace – and at the times most convenient to agency workload. You do not need to complete a course in a single session. You can return to it whenever time is available.
The AIRS courses, particularly “The Information & Referral Process” and “Introduction to Taxonomy and Indexing”, are excellent preparation for CIRS/CIRS-A and CRS certification examinations respectively. All AIRS courses feature final tests with questions written in the same format as those in AIRS Certification examinations. The completion certificate for online courses can also be used for re-certification purposes (i.e. a 3-hour course can provide 3 of the 10 training hours required).
