Professional Development

    One of the highest priorities of the Human Resource Association of North Iowa is to assist our members in their professional development. To do so the HRANI holds regular monthly meetings with informative, pertinent topics to our members.

    The HRANI also encourages our members to consider both enrolling in the SHRM Learning System course and obtaining their PHR, SPHR or GPHR certification through reimbursement programs. For more information about the SHRM Learning System and the reimbursement programs offered by HRANI please read below.

    SHRM Learning System

    The SHRM Learning System offered at NIACC sponsored by the Consortium of Iowa Community Colleges and the Human Resources Association of North Iowa.

    Why enroll in this course? The course offers a structured learning environment in which experienced instructors present the SHRM Learning System materials in an easy-to-understand format and lead lively classroom discussions. You also get the added benefit of:

    • Training close to home.
    • Access to an expert instructor.
    • Opportunity to build your peer network.
    • Course fees often qualify for tuition reimbursement.
    • 3.5 continuing education units (CEUs) for successful completion of the course.

    As if that wasn’t enough incentive to register…Don’t forget that HRANI will reimburse HRANI members $150 for successful completion of the SHRM Learning System course through NIACC.

    Reimbursement Program for Certification and Prep Class

    The Human Resource Association of North Iowa is offering a reimbursement for the exam fee to members of our chapter who attain their PHR, SPHR, or GPHR. It is a great accomplishment to add these letters behind your name and we want to celebrate and recognize your accomplishment. We are also offering reimbursement for completion of the prep class to chapter members in good standing.
