Of all the options, this certificate in human resource management, allowed me to study online and do assignments remotely. That was important for me as I live in a remote location so it was perfect. The course materials on the certificate in hr and ebooks was really excellent. I would definitely recommend.

This certificate in hr, involved attending online classes one night a week which suited my busy schedule. I didnt have the time to attend classes more than one night per week and CMI is the only college offering that. The classes were recorded and I could playback if i missed a night. I found the CMI support team always very helpful and quick to respond.I have enrolled on the next higher level hr management course with CMI, and I'm really looking forward to that.
