Even after six years of experience as an HR Generalist, the SHRM Certification class offered at Eckerd College enlightened me to how much more there is to offer as an HR Professional. The various ways of accessing the learning material—from books, hand-outs and websites to the classroom instruction which promoted participation and encouraged sharing—were wonderful and allowed for no excuses but to excel! I would recommend it highly.
