This course is offered in partnership with the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM). SHRM’s Competency Model covers eight behavioral and leadership competencies, including leadership & navigation, ethical practice, business acumen, relationship management, consultation, critical evaluation, global & cultural effectiveness, communication and one technical competency on HR Expertise (HR Knowledge), of which recruitment and selection, compensation, talent management, training and development, employee relations and engagement and compliance are covered. This 36-hour review course provides a broad overview of HR management issues and core body of knowledge.

Who is this course for?

Our certification preparation course is designed for human resource individuals seeking SHRM-CP and SHRM-SCP certification. Certification is a great choice for HR professionals who want to:

  • Increase their knowledge
  • Advance their skills
  • Earn recognition from the global community

For those not seeking certification, the SHRM Learning System course provides a comprehensive and accelerated option for professional development. Participants gain a generalist viewpoint, refresh key ideas and concepts, strengthen their understanding of core HR competencies and increase productivity in the workplace.
