Certificates of Accomplishment in Human Resources

Levels I - III

Graduate School USA's Certificates of Accomplishment in Human Resources are offered at three progressive levels. Consisting of courses that are practical, job-related, and federal-specific, our certificate programs focus on the real issues confronting contemporary HR practitioners.

Courses required for the Level I Certificate cover the conceptual, technical, and procedural knowledge needed by the successful HR practitioner. The Level II Certificate courses build on these concepts and significantly broaden and expand the student’s competencies. Level III Certificate courses further develop the analytical and consulting skills that equip the HR practitioner to serve as a valuable advisor to management.

The Level I certificate can be completed entirely online.

If you have previously completed Human Resources courses at Graduate School USA, you may be able to apply them to a certificate of accomplishment.

You may apply for these programs online. For more information about these or other certificates, please contact the certificate advisor at (202) 314-3314 or certificates@graduateschool.edu.

Special accommodations may be requested online by requesting ADA Accommodations. All requests must be received at least four weeks prior to the class start date to be fulfilled.

Certificate in Human Resources Processing

Graduate School USA’s Certificate in Human Resources Processing focuses on real issues and consists of courses that are practical, job-related, and federal specific. Courses required for this certificate cover the legal, technical, and procedural knowledge needed by those individuals who work in the HR processing arena.

Since errors in personnel action processing have significant impact on employee careers, finances, rights, retirement, and benefits, it is essential that HR practitioners doing processing work learn what to do and how to do it right. Because the work done by these practitioners impacts governmentwide HR data, a misunderstanding of these specialized requirements can result in inaccurate information being used to make management and mission decisions.

Register today for Graduate School USA’s Certificate in Human Resources Processing, and get the tools that can help you do your job better and advance your federal HR career.
