For the month of April, we have highlighted some of the 225+ genealogy and research courses offered at The International Institute for Genealogical Studies. There are a variety of themes and topics to choose from. Hopefully, we will feature some courses that you were not aware of and pique your interest to explore further.
P is for PROFESSIONAL
Many of our students have started to research their family histories before registering for our courses, and after completion, they are ready to explore what is required to continue their passion in a professional capacity, in order to assist others to discover their ancestry as well. Our Professional Development Certificate Program has been created to allow our students to achieve their dreams of working professionally.
As with other certificates, the elective courses can be fulfilled with courses specifically related to your genealogical research interests. You can add compulsory courses from another certificate, such as the DNA & Genetic Genealogy Certificate or explore other courses to consider when choosing your electives.
