    Offered in partnership with Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) and its local chapter, Central Texas Human Resource Management Association (CTHRMA), the Temple College Human Resource Management Academy is designed primarily for experienced HR professionals seeking the new SHRM-CP™ and SHRM-SCP™ credentials. This certification preparation course focuses on identifying and testing the knowledge and practical real-life experiences HR professionals around the world need to excel in their careers today.

    However, it is also open to those not seeking certification, who will find this course provides a comprehensive and accelerated option for professional development. (Another option is the shorter Essentials of HR Management class.)  Participants gain a generalist point of view, refresh key ideas and concepts, strengthen their understanding of core competencies and increase productivity.

    For those who qualify, earning your SHRM Certified Professional (SHRM-CP™) or SHRM Senior Certified Professional (SHRM-SCP™) credential establishes you as a recognized expert in the HR field. These new certifications recognize that HR professionals are at the core of leading organizational success:

    • Built on one singular Body of Competency and Knowledge (BoCK) designed to elevate the HR profession around the world.
    • Tests the HR professional’s competency – the ability to put that knowledge to work through critical thinking and application.
    • Demonstrates that the HR professional is a technical expert and has mastered the application of HR technical and behavioral competencies, through practice and experience, to drive business results.

    This certification preparation program covers four knowledge domains: People, Organization, Workplace and Strategy as well as eight behavioral competencies; Leadership & Navigation, Ethical Practice, Business Acumen, Relationship Management, Consultation, Critical Evaluation , Global & Cultural Effectiveness, and Communication.

    This intensive 40-classroom hour program combines expert instruction with the 2017 SHRM Learning System®, so you will learn faster, retain more knowledge and stay on track as you prepare for the exam. The SHRM Learning System features relevant HR content and advanced tools that streamline study time, accelerate learning and build confidence for passing the SHRM-CP/SHRM-SCP exam.

    The course investment includes all course materials, printed as well as on-line. Lunch is provided for each of the six Saturday sessions. The investment, however, does not cover registration for the SHRM-CP or SHRM-SCP examinations.
