Online Human Resource Management Certificate

The Human Resource Management certificate program provides a broad base of knowledge to professionals seeking to expand their management competencies. The coursework is essential to prepare for the Professional Human Resource (PHR) exam, developed by the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) and recognized nationally as a significant credential for professional advancement in human resources. Competencies required by human resources professionals are best defined by content of the SHRM examination, and they are the same competencies covered in the coursework required for the certificate. The certificate in no way implies or guarantees that the student will pass the exam but should be seen as an important professional accomplishment.
