Continuing Education Credits
HR professionals know that their field constantly evolves. In order to be a strategic partner in your organization's success, you must stay abreast of changing laws, best practices and innovative labor strategies. Certified HR professionals are required to recertify their designation every three years.
As a Human Resource Certification Institute (HRCI) approved provider, many of our courses offered through the Human Resource Management pillar of the Corporate Training Institute qualify for recertification credit.
