Human Resource Certification Exam Preparation

Certification as a Human Resources professional is becoming an integral step to building a successful career. Brandman prepares HR professionals to take either the Professional in Human Resources (PHR) or the Senior Professional in Human Resources (SPHR) exam from HRCI. We also offer the new SHRM Certified Professional (SHRM-CP) and SHRM Senior Certified Professional (SHRM-SCP) exam prep courses.

Leadership Development Certificate Programs

The Leadership Development Certificate is a three-phase program designed for both emerging and experienced leaders that want practical and proven tools to build leadership capacity, improve employee performance, increase team effectiveness and enhance organizational productivity. Each phase of the program consists of a separate 35-45 hour certificate program that integrates and builds on the knowledge and skill development of the previous phase. Although it is recommended the certificate programs be taken in sequence, it is not a requirement.
