There are no prerequisites for this course, but it is intended for those working in HR and Employee Management.

Because HR can be a moving target, this course arms supervisors and managers with basic HR skills to prepare them for the day-to-day challenges of interacting with staff members. Developed by leading HR experts, HR practitioners, and legal counsel, the SHRM Essentials of Human Resources course covers introductory HR topics in a condensed, easy-to-understand format. The straightforward format ensures that HR concepts can be mastered and applied to real-life situations.
