About this course

This one-year Ontario College Graduate Certificate program prepares students for a rewarding career in the field of human resources management. Human resources professionals are in demand across many industries and drive talent management for organizations. Human resources professionals also work throughout organizations to improve employee productivity to achieve organizational goals. Graduates learn by way of application of theories, strategies and best practices as they learn recruitment and selection, compensation, employee and labour relations, training and development and human resources planning.

The program is delivered over two levels in a variety of course formats. Qualified students also complete an unpaid work placement concurrent with Level 02, where students apply best practices to real-world organizations. The program explores the profession of human resources, and focuses on building human resources knowledge and skills needed to attract, select and retain the best employees. In addition, the program provides the foundational knowledge required to act as a strategic partner in an organization. Level 01 courses provide a background in finance and accounting, organizational behaviour, project management and employment law.

Graduates may find employment in many for-profit and non-profit organizations, such as hi-tech, manufacturing, healthcare and retail. Graduates may also find employment by specializing in occupational health and safety, recruitment and selection, training and development, labour relations or total rewards.

Costs will vary depending on your choice of program, where you choose to live, and your lifestyle. Tuition fees include full-coverage health insurance.
