The HR Principles & Practices 16 hour intensive certification was just the thing I was looking for. As an HR Coach for over two decades, it is important that I remain current and relevant in today's business challenges and best practices. This course helped me celebrate where I am on track and identify opportunities for fine-tuning. The program was well designed, pragmatic and delivered with appropriate pace. It was appropriate and relevant for students of all levels of HR experience and knowledge. I feel very fortunate to have been the benefactor of Rosemary Pell's teachings and experience. Well done.
