Part-time Certificate 6295cert

Advanced Human Resource Management

Human Resource Management is a prerequisite for this program. If you have taken one or more of these courses as part of your Management Certificate in HR, your program must be modified prior to acceptance into the Advanced Human Resources Certificate program. For more information, contact Program Advising at 604-434-1610. The Certificate will be granted upon completion of an approved program of study consisting of a minimum of 45 additional credits over and above the Management certificate in Human Resources. These 45 credits may not duplicate any previously credited courses.

Credit Transferability: The majority of our courses can be transferred to most educational institutions in BC. Also, we have articulation agreements with several industry, government and education partners that allow students who have taken courses or programs at these organizations to apply for transfer of their credits to BCIT. For details, contact Student Information and Enrolment Services at 604-434-1610 or toll-free at 1-866-434-1610 (Canada and United States only) to leave your name and number for a Program Advisor to return your call.

Completion of a Human Resource Management Certificate is required prior to completion of the Advanced Human Resource Management Certificate program.

It is strongly recommended that you assess your fundamental mathematical skills. The Mathematics Self-Diagnostic Test below is voluntary. If you find these problems difficult, we strongly recommend that you attend OPMT 0199. You should be able to do this exercise in about an hour, after which you should compare your answers with the correct ones supplied. If you scored less than 20 out of 26 correct, you should seriously consider upgrading your mathematical skills.

Previous work experience in a marketing-related position will be advantageous, but is not required.

Courses

Program delivery

This part-time studies program is offered on a course-by-course basis, allowing you the flexibility to complete courses in any order, provided that any required course prerequisites have been completed. Students register for each course individually, and may undertake studies in any term (Winter, Spring/Summer or Fall). While you may choose the pace of your studies, all program requirements must be completed within seven years as per BCIT Policy 5103 - Student Evaluation [PDF].

Please note that some courses in this program are offered only once or twice per year, and BCIT reserves the right to cancel courses if enrolment is insufficient.

In-classroom delivery is available for most courses in the program. Some courses are also offered online.

The length of most in-classroom courses is 36 hours of classroom time, delivered in either 12 sessions (e.g. one three-hour class per week), six sessions (e.g. one six-hour class per week), or five sessions (e.g. one 7.25-hour class per day). Students should schedule an additional one to two hours of independent study time for each hour of in-classroom time, to complete readings, assignments, projects and exam preparation.

The length of most online courses is 12 weeks. Online learning students should plan to spend an average of seven-to-ten hours per week on their studies for each course.
