PBSC offers new certification prep courses for HR professionals
New certification preparation courses are available for human resource professionals through Palm Beach State College’s Corporate and Continuing Education division, in partnership with the Society for Human Resources Management (SHRM).
SHRM’s new competency-based certifications are: the SHRM Certified Professional (SHRM –CP) and SHRM Senior Certified Professional (SHRM-SCP). Palm Beach State is also offering an SHRM introductory course on the Essentials for Human Resource Management.
The courses will be offered at the College’s Boca Raton and Palm Beach Gardens campuses in the Spring 2016 term.
“The Society for Human Resource Management is delighted at the opportunity to partner with PBSC and to help HR professionals acquire both the competencies and knowledge essential for success in today’s global economy,” said J. Robert Carr, senior vice president for membership, marketing and external affairs. “SHRM is committed to ensuring that the certifications our participants receive are recognized as best-in-class and distinguishes them in the marketplace. We regard the SHRM-CP and SHRM-SCP as the new standard in certifications for the HR profession.”
PBSC is the only approved training partner in Palm Beach County for SHRM, the world’s largest association devoted to human resource management.
“With the help of outstanding certification preparation tools from SHRM, our courses will help professionals prepare for the SHRM-CP and SHRM-SCP exams, which are based on a single, comprehensive SHRM body of competency and knowledge and are relevant worldwide,” said Jason Cohen, CCE program coordinator. “This will give professionals the recognition and flexibility to use their knowledge, skills and competencies anywhere their career takes them.”
