Program Description

If you have a goal of working in Human Resources, this diploma program is for you. You will continue to build upon the concepts developed at the Business Administration Certificate level. The Human Resource Management Diploma allows you to specialize in the human resource field. It will help prepare you to write the national exam required to be a Certified Human Resources Professional.

Human Resources has become increasingly complex. Employers are expected to interpret, understand and implement labour laws, taxation laws, human rights and employment standards. They deal with issues of employee recruitment, employee retention, and health and safety in the workplace. As companies grow, it is necessary to have Human Resource departments that give guidance, advice, and leadership around these specialized issues.
