Human Resources Management Course Offered

AUG. 12, 2005--This fall, the University of Wisconsin-River Falls' College of Business and Economics is offering a human resources management course using the Society of Human Resource Management (SHRM®) Learning System.

The course is useful to business professionals who want to expand their knowledge of human resources. "Human resources management is an ever-growing, complex and competitive facet of the business world," said Sally Fields, human resources practitioner and course instructor. "No one can afford to forego opportunities to maximize their knowledge and potential in the field."

The course will cover a variety of topics ranging from strategic management to occupational health, safety and security. The course is geared toward human resource professionals and general managers, who will review the key concepts in human resource management and discuss current issues affecting human resources.

Participants can also network with other professionals and share real-world experiences that will help them deal with the growing complexities of their field.

Upon completion, certified SHRM® practitioners will receive 36 of the 50 credits required for recertification. Participants who are not yet certified will have gained the foundation in human resources principles to successfully complete the Professional in Human Resources (PHR) or Senior Professional in Human Resources (SPHR) certification exam.

The course runs 6 to 9 p.m., Mondays, Sept. 12 - Nov. 28 at UW-RF, Room 318 South Hall. Cost for the 12-week course is $995, which includes the SHRM® Learning System study guide and CD.
