Institute for Human Resource Management Education
An organization's Human Resources (HR) Department is a critical
component of its success. Forsyth Tech's Institute for Human Resource
Management Education offers courses and an HR certificate that will
equip you with the requisite skills, tools and knowledge to effectively
deal with human resource issues arising in your organization.
Participants enrolled in these courses do not earn traditional college
credit. Instead, Continuing Education Units (CEUs) are awarded for
successful completion of each course.
The Institute offers the following options for HR management training:
Human Resource Management Certificate
The Human Resource Management Certificate program provides a
comprehensive, practical foundation for individuals interested in
becoming HR generalists. Individuals currently employed in HR can
broaden their understanding of their profession, gain skills required
for advancement and acquire an educational credential in HR. Courses
cover today's most vital and timely topics, including employment law,
selecting qualified employees, compensation, orientation and training
and the employee performance process.
Graduates of the Human Resource Management program receive Forsyth Tech's certificate in Human Resource Management, a noncredit educational credential indicating successful completion of a comprehensive course of study in human resources. To successfully complete the program and earn the certificate, participants must satisfactorily complete seven core courses and three electives over a two-year period. Non-certificate students may enroll in individual courses.
