IRE is happy to announce the return of the Total Newsroom Training program. This is your newsroom’s opportunity to have intense, in-house investigative training — for free. If your organization is hungry for customized investigative training and can’t afford it, apply today. Spots are limited.

Total Newsroom Training is designed to increase the ability of news organizations to provide watchdog and enterprise coverage for their communities and to produce work that can lead to change and improvements.

The program is meant to help small to medium-size news organizations, and IRE customizes training based on the needs of the organization. These sessions can include web tools, background techniques and hands-on training using spreadsheets with Microsoft Excel.

IRE is now accepting applications. The deadline to apply is Sunday, March 22 at 11:00 p.m. CDT. Learn more about the program and how to apply.
