Bring IRE to your newsroom

If your newsroom has cut back on sending journalists away for training, maybe you can persuade your bosses to bring IRE to you.

IRE's custom training is surprisingly affordable, with a proven track record of producing results.

Working with our training directors, your news organization can put together the most effective schedule for your staff — one day, several days or even a week.

IRE can parachute into your newsroom and provide a variety of services, whether you need hands-on computer training or workshops on investigative reporting. Here's a sampling of what we offer:

  • Hands-on training in using spreadsheets and/or databases for better watchdog stories and beat coverage. We teach beginning, intermediate and advanced training. If your news organization lacks a computer training room, we can ship up to 20 laptop computers loaded with software and practice exercises.
  • Creating and fostering a watchdog culture in your newsroom.
  • Obtaining data and public records and making sense of them.
  • Storyboarding, planning, and managing investigative stories and projects.
  • Building an effective intranet of public records to strengthen your newsroom's reporting on deadline.
  • Harnessing the power of the Internet from the invisible Web to best search strategies.
  • Hands-on training in ArcView mapping software, SPSS statistical analysis software and social network analysis software.Our in-house training is tailored to fit your needs as well as your newsroom's budget. Fees are based on organization size and set up as a daily rate. Discounts are available for multiple days of training.If you are interested in having this training come to your area, please contact one of IRE's training directors: Doug Haddix, doug@ire.org or Jaimi Dowdell, jaimi@ire.org.
