ROCK HILL, S.C. - Classes begin Sept. 16 at Winthrop University for those interested in pursuing a certificate in professional human resource management.
The 33-hour course is sanctioned by the Society for Human Resource Management as preparation for the Professional in Human Resource exam and the Senior Professional in Human Resource exam.
Those interested in taking the course include professionals who seek a broad overview of human resource management and individuals preparing for human resources certification exams. The passage rate for those taking the Winthrop course, offered through the Institute of Management, in 2007 was higher than the national rate.
Classes will be held on campus every Tuesday from 6 to 9 p.m. through Nov. 25 in the Thurmond Building, which houses the College of Business Administration. The course covers the six functional areas of human resource management: strategic management, work force planning and employment, human resource development, total rewards, employee and labor relations, and risk management. Instructors are human resource professionals and faculty members who teach human resource management.
The course costs $845, which includes textbooks, tuition, interactive CD-ROM and comprehensive exam review. For more information, contact Katie Dykhuis, director of external relations for the College of Business Administration, at 803/323-2377 or 1-800/387-1923.
