What are the advantages of earning a Human Resource Generalist Certificate?

Individuals who work in the area of human resources often do so without formal training in the field. This program provides a solid base of knowledge about current law and practices. Developing a strong foundation of information can mean the difference in successfully recruiting and retaining employees. Employers often expect managers to have a basic knowledge and understanding of various aspects of human resources. This is also true for individuals whose job includes human resource functions but is not exclusively restricted to that department. Developing a strong base of knowledge in human resources can eliminate costly (and needless) problems caused by staff who have not received proper training and who may make decisions that conflict with current law and practice. 

Can I transfer seminars into the program that I took elsewhere?

Unlike the NAC, the Human Resource Generalist Certificate has no provisions for the transfer of other seminars.  To earn the certificate, all seminars must be taken as specified under the "Requirements" section. 

How long do I have to finish the program?

You may complete the program in one year or take up to two years (maximum) to complete the certificate.  

What are the costs?

The total cost is approximately $968, which includes the $25 enrollment fee. This does not include any mileage or meal expenses. We are happy to arrange a payment schedule with you if needed.
