NRCC SHRM program offered in February

Feb 01 2022

Registration is open for New River Community College’s online Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) Certified Professional of Human Resources program that begins February 17, 2022.

The SHRM Certification Preparation Course will broaden and update students' knowledge and skills, while delivering everything needed to pass the SHRM-CP exam, all in an interactive “live” virtual class environment. The course content reflects the SHRM Body of Competency and Knowledge and will be taught by a certified instructor who will provide expertise, insights, and one-on-one guidance. Students will acquire the knowledge and understand the behavioral competencies needed to prepare to pass the exam as well as network, share experiences, and discuss best practices with a diverse group of human resources professionals.

During the course, students will cover competencies in leadership, ethical practice, business acumen, and global and cultural effectiveness. The course will also focus on the people side of human resources through strategic planning, employee engagement, and retention. Other topics in the course include organizational effectiveness, labor relations, diversity & inclusion, and U.S. Employment Law and regulations.

The SHRM program is eligible for tuition assistance through the G3 program. This program provides Virginia residents who qualify for in-state tuition and whose family income falls below an identified threshold with tuition assistance. Additional financial assistance may also be available.

To register, email Ryan Adams at radams@nr.edu or call (540) 674-3600 ext. 4435.

SHRM is one of several NRCC FastForward programs that provides affordable, short-term training through the Office of Workforce Development. For more information about FastForward program offerings, visit www.nr.edu/fastforward/.
