Programme Overview

Our Certificate in HR Operations is an 12 - 18 month programme focused on building your practical, tactical HR skills and experience. Over the course you can attend facilitated workshops, complete online learning modules with on the job assignments and discuss your learnings with your our HR team. The programme also involves assessing your achievement level from the start to the finish.

Who should attend?

You’ll benefit most from the Certificate in HR Operations if you are mainly Level 1 on the HR experience assessment sheet (click here to download).  You may be:

Working as an HR Administrator, Coordinator or HR Advisor.

Coming from a more specialised area (e.g. L&D) but now moving into generalist HR.

In an Office Manager/PA role but with HR responsibilities.

What will you finish with?

The Certificate in HR Operations is different from tertiary study as you need to be working in a role where you can apply what you’re learning, rather than covering theory. You’ll work through case studies and run simulations so that you get as much experience as you can during the course, before you have to do it in real life. Once you’ve completed your final assessment you will be awarded your certificate.
