Overview/Description
Continuous development of an organization's human resources is linked to several benefits. The learning and development (L&D) function of HR management comprises a systematic set of activities to help provide employees with key skills and competencies required on the job. The goals of the L&D function in organizations include aligning employees' skillsets with the organization's objectives, closing skill gaps, and enhancing overall capability of people and the organization. In this course, you'll explore theoretical and practical aspects of adult learning, training development and delivery, measurement of training effectiveness, and employee development programs in organizations. You will also learn about career development and career management. The content is based on the Body of Competency and Knowledge (BoCK), 2015 of the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM). While the course helps learners to prepare for the SHRM-CP/SCP certification exams, it is equally useful for HR professionals who want to develop capabilities for improving their effectiveness in the workplace and advancing their careers.

Target Audience
This course is aimed at junior- or senior-level human resource professionals, HR managers, and all individuals preparing for the SHRM-CP and SHRM-SCP certification examinations of the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM). Compensation and benefits analysts, administrators, staffing managers, and recruiters will also have interest in this certification path. Courses in this curriculum are created keeping in mind certification as well as noncertification users of the content. While the curriculum helps learners to prepare for the SHRM certification exams, it is equally useful for HR professionals who want to develop capabilities for improving their effectiveness in the workplace and advancing their careers.
