If you’re hoping to move into positions that require skills in employee recruitment and training, or knowledge of labour relations, organizational behaviour, health and safety, Saskatchewan Polytechnic’s Human Resources Management certificate program will interest you. It’s practical training in critical HR functions, from payroll and benefits to recruitment and labour relations. Take the program to develop in-demand knowledge and skills in the growing field of human resources management.
The Human Resources Management certificate program is offered on a course-by-course basis through Continuing Education on evenings and Saturdays, as well as through distance education. You’ll study key areas in HR management such as:
Courses integrate demonstrations, projects and practical exercises to help you translate theory into practice. For example, you’ll develop a proposal to help management enhance employee relations; you’ll discuss current trends in labour relations; you’ll use role-play to develop conflict resolution skills; you’ll participate in simulations and experiential exercises to build practical skills.
Human resources professionals work for large companies, municipalities, government departments, health authorities, university and school systems. You might start as an entry-level HR assistant, or you might move into a general management position that demands HR skills. Your certificate prepares you to work in different areas of human resources management, including classifications, recruitment, benefits, employment equity, job analysis, employee relations, staff training and administration.
