Information and Referral (I&R) Certification 1

The Certification for I&R Specialists in Aging/Disabilities (CIRS-A/D) is designed for I&R practitioners who work directly with individuals and caregivers, providing information about services and resources. The CIRS-A/D certification is offered through the Alliance for Information and Referral Systems (AIRS).  n4a and NASUAD are national AIRS partners that support certification throughout the Aging and Disability Networks. These organizations recently partnered to develop a certification factsheet (LINK), which provides answers to questions about eligibility, the application process and recertification information.
