Ivy Tech Community College Bloomington is offering a 12-week Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM®) certification preparation class. The course starts Aug. 21 and will be held Mondays from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Students can attend the class via Zoom or in person at Ivy Tech Bloomington.
This is an opportunity to demonstrate qualifications and become a recognized expert in human resources. Students will learn how to apply HR principles to real-life, ethical practices, and employee relations.
An SHRM® credential helps increase earning potential, get promoted, and gain readiness. HR professionals who pass the SHRM certification exam report earning salaries 7% to 9% higher than peers who did not. Of SHRM-certified professionals who were promoted, 63% report that their credential was a key factor.
To be eligible for the SHRM®-CP and SHRM®-SCP exams, participants must meet specific educational and work experience criteria at the time of application. For details on eligibility, visit shrmcertification.org/eligibility.
