Funded by the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), AIR produces Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS) training opportunities, including video tutorials, virtual workshops, face-to-face national IPEDS Workshops, and online Keyholder courses.
Watch one or more online training video tutorials. These just-in-time training videos provide you with necessary content in smaller segments to assist with specific areas of reporting and data tool use.
Attend a workshop for an intensive, short-term professional development experience. Increase your skills and knowledge on a variety of IPEDS topics with individual instruction.
Online Keyholder Courses
These mentor-supported courses can be completed from the comfort of your home or office, and require approximately 10–12 hours of study within a one-month period.
NCES Data Institute
With support from NCES, AIR operates the NCES Data Institute: Using Federal Datasets to Support Research on Postsecondary Education—an intensive introduction to NCES datasets and research methodologies using large-scale national data sources
AIR recruits experienced IPEDS users to develop and deliver a curriculum that takes a broad view of IPEDS data to assure the quality of the submission of these data and improve the skills of those using these data. Educators learn from NCES staff about the latest changes to IPEDS and develop their skills with various IPEDS data tools.
