Over the past one week, we have been looking frantically for a qualified HR specialist for a budding company. Very regularly also, when I go out for speaking engagements, I find one or more of the participants asking me how they can become HR specialists. I usually give them a brief answer about volounteering to gain experience and also registering with CIPM for now, and that there is something we are working on, that would be available for them soon. Well, the time is ripe now, and we now have developed a course to help all those HR wannabe’s to become HR specialists. It’s unfortunate that none of our Universities offers this course, but you don’t have to worry anymore, we have a course that can take you from rookie to very knowledgeable in 4 days.
