Human Resource Administration Diploma Program

After meeting with area employers, we added the Human Resource Administration program to our area of study to fulfill their job requests. We included courses in the skills needed for job-ready Human Resource employees.  These include  Microsoft courses, Human Resource Management, Staffing and Hiring Process, Managing Change, Strategic Compensation, Employee Benefits Design, Risk Management and additional core courses.

Upon successful completion of the program, you have the ability to sit for the Professional in Human Resources (aPHR ®) certification exam to become an even more valuable prospective employee.
Our instructors have worked in the Human Resource field for years, so they incorporate real-life examples into their lessons.

This program is online, so you could complete all coursework in the comfort of your own home or stop by and use our campus computer labs if you need some assistance.
