TRU Staffing Partners, an award-winning search firm representing talent and opportunities in the e-discovery, litigation support and cybersecurity space, today announced that the company has formed an affinity partnership with the Association of Certified E-Discovery Specialists (ACEDS), the BARBRI organization that is the largest in the world exclusively for e-discovery professionals.

As part of the partnership, TRU Staffing Partners is extending a discounted preferred rate on the Certified E-Discovery Specialist (CEDS) Certification Package offered by ACEDS. The CEDS Certification Package includes:

  • A one-year individual ACEDS membership
  • Access to live and recorded versions of CEDS Online Preparation training
  • A 145-page exam study guide
  • The CEDS exam (a discounted rate is available for those who need to retake the exam)

In addition, as part of the affinity partnership, individuals who register through TRU Staffing Partners will have access to exclusive, geographically-localized TRU study groups and private networking events, and will also receive priority access to TRU’s team of recruiters and career management professionals throughout the country.

“This partnership allows e-discovery professionals to deepen and validate their e-discovery knowledge through CEDS preparation and examination, while simultaneously pairing individuals with TRU’s staffing and career management experts. TRU will be sponsoring study groups throughout the United States to not only enrich the educational process through peer mentorship, but also to encourage e-discovery professionals to be social and to engage their local communities in professional networking. The ACEDS and TRU affinity partnership aims to encourage the global standardization of e-discovery base education, nurture the professionals who aspire to enter the space, harness the experience of seasoned professionals and accelerate the career mobility of all TRU-represented talent,” stated Jared Coseglia, president of TRU Staffing Partners.

CEDS certification responds to the need for professionals with diverse skills and knowledge across the e-discovery spectrum. It facilitates sound hiring practices, advances careers and gives a competitive advantage both to the individuals who earn it and to their employers. By becoming CEDS certified, professionals show employers they are equipped to tackle a wide range of e-discovery challenges.

“ACEDS and TRU Staffing Partners share a passion for helping people who work in e-discovery and legal technology realize their career potentials,” added Robert Hilson, executive director of ACEDS. “This partnership reflects a common mission to drive the profession forward by improving the ways in which practitioners and their organizations verify expertise in an increasingly high-stakes field.”
