Professional in Human Resources Certificate Program - Online


The 13-week online version of the Professional in Human Resources Certificate Program is recommended for HR professionals who are unable to attend an in-class session. This course offers convenience and there is no preset time that participants must be online. The asynchronous learning environment allows you to explore the course material in depth and to express yourself in ways that are not always possible given the time constraints of a conventional class.
