What Are The Requirements To Take The Program?

There are no requirements, just your paid tuition. We've had completely inexperienced students who just want to help and experienced genealogists and genetic genealogists who have worked as Search Angels. All you need is a desire to learn!

How Do I Get Support If I Need Help?

You are NOT in this alone!We have monthly, optional, live, group video calls with your instructor. We also have a private community where you can get support from other current students, the instructor, and our graduates. We also have email support and an in-school messaging system.

How Does This Compare To College Courses?

Our Certificate program is similar to a trade school. You'll gain experience and technical skills in genetic genealogy and there are no prerequisites like some colleges or universities. Our class also includes real world cases and offers an internship, giving you demonstrable experience and support as you transition to the real world so you are comfortable with your skills and your direction.

Is There An Advantage With This Program In Being Hired?

"For some organizations, proving you can do the work is enough to get you the job without a degree. Recently many leading companies have changed their mindset about requiring degrees, including Google, Netflix, Tesla, IBM, Penguin Random House, Bank of America, Hilton, and Apple. In fact, nearly half of Apple’s U.S. workforce includes people without four-year degrees."**

What Is The Return On My Investment?

Genetic genealogy is an emerging technology for law enforcement and others. There are numerous commercial companies that currently supply FGG services to police. and many departments are starting to hire civilian personnel to help them do this work in house. There are an estimated 18,000+ LE agencies across the U.S. and some of these are starting to contract directly with vendors.
