This course includes information on personnel law and the basics of human resource management including

  • day-to-day issues facing human resource staffs

  • the role of the personnel manager

  • methods for establishing and adhering to sound personnel policies and procedures

Unlike in a face-to-face class, students can complete this web course at their own pace, on their own schedule, within a 30-day period. Successful completion of this first online credit offering will earn students 0.6 Continuing Education Units (CEUs), the same credits that they would receive for attending a traditional six-hour Human Resources I workshop.


By completing six lessons and accompanying multiple-choice quizzes, students will gain knowledge and skills that will help them work more effectively in all phases of human resource management.
