Human Resources

Certificate

Program number: 901161CERT

Overview

The Human Resources certificate at Madison College was designed to help you refresh your skills in order to maintain or pursue a career in human resources. You will learn the nature of human management, strategic planning, issues in human resources, analyzing and staffing jobs, payroll compensation, benifit managment, training and developing human resources.

Learn two keys to effective management: results and relationships, in the context of the traditional managerial elements of planning, organizing, directing and controlling. Students learn techniques for problem solving, critical thinking, decision-making, delegation, motivation, change management, and political savvy behavior, and apply these techniques through simulations, role-plays and case studies.

One of the courses also emphasizes development of Emotional Intelligence (EI), including self-assessment, as well as learning and applying specific techniques to improve each element of EI.

These 12 credits can also be used towards earning your associate degree in Human Resourses. Our instructors at Madison College will update and further your knowledge in this field.
