Generative artificial intelligence; supporting your work and maintaining EEOC compliance

In addition, representatives from PA CareerLink and Workforce Solutions for North Central PA will be present to share information on local resources to help you grow your workforce.

Two of the Society of Human Resource Management (SHRM) training courses are being offered by Penn State DuBois, in partnership with Penn State Scranton. Both the SHRM Learning System course and the SHRM Essentials course are instructor-led courses being offered online via Zoom.
SHRM offers the new certification standard for the HR profession. Earning your SHRM-Certified Professional (SHRM-CP™) or SHRM-Senior Certified Professional (SHRM-SCP™) credential establishes you as a recognized expert in the HR field. The SHRM Learning System course consists of 39 hours of virtual classroom instruction, including a review prior to the new certification exam. In addition to the classroom experience, you will receive SHRM Learning System materials and access to online learning, legislative updates and practice tests.
The SHRM Learning System course will be offered on Thursdays from Sept. 7 through Dec. 7, with no class taking place on Nov. 23. Classes will take place from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. each scheduled Thursday.
SHRM Essentials provides participants with knowledge and skills that can be used immediately. The course addresses six key human resource subjects in a user-friendly format designed to give an effective learning experience. This course is ideal for those who are just starting out in the human resources profession, or those who are looking for an effective way to boost their employee management skills.
The SHRM Essentials course will take place on Thursdays in 2024, beginning on May 2 and running through May 23. Classes will take place from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. each scheduled Thursday.
