HRPD Application

2014 Course Schedule

Application deadline is Friday, March 14, 2014.


  • The program is designed to be completed in its entirety — learning is maximized when cohort groups share information, borrow off each others' experience and form a network. In addition, program topics are sequenced and integrated to promote knowledge retention and the connection between HR components.


  • Program content has been updated to incorporate current issues and is organized into three broad content areas: The HR Big Picture, which includes sessions like Ethics and HR; HR Functions, which includes Employee Relations and other topics; and HR Accountability, which includes HR Metrics. Some of the sessions have been consolidated and a new session, Job Analysis, has been added.


  • A blended learning approach has been implemented to include online pre-work and application activities where appropriate. In addition HR agency representatives/subject matter experts will be used to describe real examples of innovative practices.


  • Program Goals include:

  • Serving as a succession pool development strategy for state government's HR community


  • Broadening participants' HR knowledge base and developing leadership potential


  • Creating a network that shares "best practices" among agencies' HR functions


  • Challenging participants to think strategically and act as a business partner to support their agencies' respective missions


  • COST OF HRPD CERTIFICATION (COMPLETED AS A COHORT GROUP) $1,000.00
