WICHITA, Kansas – The new Center for Corporate Learning, launched by Southwestern College, will offer its first course in September.
The course will consist of seven facilitated sessions where human resource professionals can prepare for their Professional in Human Resource (PHR®) or Senior Professional in Human Resource (SPHR®) certification exams. Both certifications, through the Human Resource Certification Institute (HRCI®), demonstrate that HR professionals have mastered best practices. All PHR®/SPHR® certified professionals are therefore better prepared for program implementation and tactical/logistical orientation at their organizations.
The Center for Corporate Learning (CCL) was established to embrace partnerships between Southwestern College and business and industry. Along with the PHR®/SPHR® examination prep course, CCL also offers quality training programs designed specifically for individual organizations.
The PHR®/SPHR® preparatory course will focus on the Bodies of Knowledge, the foundation of the Human Resource Certification Institute (HRCI™) exam. They include business and management strategy, workforce planning and employment, human resource development, compensation and benefits, employee and labor relations and risk management. The preparatory course benefits small business owners, managers with HR responsibilities and those wishing to increase their HR knowledge base.
The seven-week course, which will be taught by local, experienced professionals, runs from September 12th through October 24th. The classes are conveniently held on Saturdays from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Southwestern College Professional Studies campus at 2040 S. Rock Rd. in Wichita. The cost is just $950 per person and includes printed and online materials. Those interested in registering can visit https://secure.jotformpro.com/SouthwesternCollege/cclregistration.
