UW-RF OFFERS COURSE FOR HUMAN RESOURCE PRACTITIONERS

JAN. 27, 2006--This spring, the University of Wisconsin-River Falls College of Business and Economics will offer "Human Resource Management," a course to help professionals and practitioners build HR management skills. The 12-week course uses the Society of Human Resource Management (SHRM ® ) Learning System.

"Human resources management is an ever-growing, complex and competitive facet of the business world," says Sally Field, human resources practitioner and instructor for the course. "No one can afford to forego opportunities to maximize their knowledge and potential in the field."

Classes are held Monday evenings beginning Feb. 20 on the UW-River Falls campus. In the course, human resource professionals and general managers will review the key concepts in human resource management and discuss current issues affecting human resources. Participants will also be able to network with other professionals and share experiences that help them deal with the growing complexities of their field. The course will cover a variety of topics ranging from strategic management to occupational health, safety and security.

Upon completion, certified SHRM® practitioners will receive 3.5 continuing education (CEU) credits required for recertification. Practitioners and general managers who are not yet certified will have gained the solid foundation in human resource principles to take the Professional in Human Resources (PHR) or Senior Professional in Human Resources (SPHR) certification exam.

The cost for this noncredit course is $995, which includes the cost of the SHRM® Learning System study guide and CD. Register and payment can be completed online at www.uwrf.edu/ogs .
