Certificate in Human Resource Management

The Certificate in Human Resource Management (HRM) is composed of these courses:

  • HRM 0100 – Managing the Human Resource Function

    This course introduces the strategic management of the human resource functions within various types of organizations. While taking into account recent changes in the economic, social and legal environment, it examines the essential functions of recruitment, selection, performance management, training and development, health and safety, counselling, union/management relations and compensation.

  • HRM 0110 – Human Resource Legislation

    Provincial and some federal legislation regulating human resource management will be discussed. The course covers matters arising out of the Labour Relations Act, the Human Rights Code, the Employment Standards Act and related legislation, the Canadian Constitution, the Worker’s Compensation Act, the Pay Equity Act and other related labour and human resource legislation.

  • HRM 0122 – Recruitment and Selection
  • HRM 0124 – Workplace Health and Safety

    For most organizations today, the health and safety of workers is paramount to a vibrant and effective workplace; thus, HR professionals must have a solid understanding of workplace health and safety issues, policies and legislation. This course provides students with the knowledge, skills, and practical application needed to develop and ensure compliance to modern health, safety and wellness poilicies and procedures. Topics include current legislation within Canada, workers compensation, hazards, risks and interventions, and wellness programs.

  • HRM 0128 – Measuring Human Resource Efficiency and Effectiveness

    Traditionally, one challenge facing the HR professional has been the measurement of the apparently intangible goals and performance of the HR department, due to the lack of adequate data. Today HR metrics provide a method of measuring the effectiveness and efficiency of the various functions of the HR department, thus resulting in a financially-accountable department. HR metrics quantify the cost and impact of employee programs and HR processes as well as measure the success (or failure) of HR initiatives. This course introduces students to HR metrics and measures, which include the concepts of cost per hire, yield ratio, turnover costs, training investment factor and revenue factor. This course will also address HR audits, HRIS design principles and reporting.

  • HRM 0126 – Strategic Human Resource Planning
  • HRM 0210 – Total Compensation

  • HRM 0202 – Labour Relations

    This course presents the theory and practice of labour relations in Canada; specifically, this course examines the employee relations framework within Canada including its legal, political, social, economic and ecological subsystems. Key topics include industrial relations, union-management relations, collective bargaining and labour economics. Special attention will be given to the strategies that managers can utilize in order to work effectively and fairly with employers and deal with difficult situations in both unionized and non-unionized environments.
