Entrance Requirements: Post-Secondary degree or diploma and OR relevant experience

This human resources online training certificate will assist students in further understanding the role of first line management, the role of a job description, and the role of compensation and benefits in the recruitment and selection process. Recruitment and selection are viewed from both the line manager and the Human Resource personnel perspective. The program introduces the conflict management techniques needed to handle difficult conversations and to provide effective performance management.

In many cases the opportunity for advancement precedes the training to facilitate success in the position. Inadequate preparation for the position of supervisor makes achieving success more difficult. Learning the principles of management as presented in this program prepares one to be a strategic and respected leader.

Students learn how to analyze and administer their organization’s human resources policies, and ensure they are compliant with the respective legislation. The focus is on creating a positive, supportive work atmosphere that leads to engagement. But, when employees are not on board, students learn how to administer progressive discipline measures.

The Human Resources for Professionals certificate is broken down into 5 modules:

  • Strategic Leadership
  • Compensation, Benefits and Other Rewards
  • Recruitment and Selection
  • Employee Relations and the Work Environment
  • Learning, Performance and Development
