The HRP is designed to train students into competent human capital management professionals. It serves two sets of students: those seeking to improve their skills as line supervisors and managers, and those seeking to pursue careers in human resource (HR) management.

The first twelve months of the program prepare students for supervisory roles in their respective roles. This training leads to the award of the Certificate in Human Resource Management (CHR).

Students who proceed beyond the CHR to successfully complete an additional six months of training in the program are awarded the Diploma in Human Resource Development (Dipl. HR). This additional training focuses on specializing students for a career in human capital development. It also provides the preparation needed by students to sit for the SHRM certification examinations. So at the end of the 18 months successful students would have earned the Diploma in Human Resource Development (Dipl. HR) and their SHRM certification, thus preparing them for successful careers in human capital development.


The program is structured as follows:

  • Part I: 12 Months - Certificate in Human Resource Management (CHR)
  • Part II: 6 Months (after CHR) - Diploma in Human Resource Development (Dipl. HR).

Classes meet twice a week in intense online sessions all of which are structured to provide students with a firm theoretical and practical basis to grow as HR professionals. Students will be expected to work in small groups, exploring cases and scenarios that will expound on concepts introduced in class. Furthermore, students will be expected to assume (different) roles in their cohort so as to explore the complex issues that arise in human capital management. These concepts and issues will be explored in the courses listed below:

 Part I (CHR):

  • Introduction to Human Resource Management
  • Customer Service & Professionalism
  • Listening And Attentiveness
  • Essentials of Occupational Health & Safety
  • Behavioral Typology & Group Dynamics
  • Leadership, Organizational Values & Character Development
  • Organizational Strategy, Forecasting and Human Resource Planning
  • Hierarchy, Organizational Structure and Management
  • Human Capital, Training and Workforce Development
  • Essential Concepts In Industrial Relations Management
  • Essential Concepts In Finance and Accounting
  • Intellectual Property Management

Part II (Dipl. HR):

  • Regulatory Compliance for HR Professionals
  • Bias & Discrimination In The Workplace
  • Recruitment and Employee Selection
  • On-boarding & New Employee Management
  • Identity, Gender & Sexual Harassment
  • Compensation and Employee Benefits Management
  • Digital Identity, Social Media and Workforce Management
  • Physical & Psychological Well-being In The Workplace
  • Managing Ethnicity & Cultural Diversity
  • Methods & Techniques In Conflict Resolution
  • Advanced Topics In Occupational Health and Safety
  • Advanced Topics In Labor Law

 


HRP classes are designed to be convenient for working as well as supported students. Classes are usually scheduled for evenings and weekends where convenient for the cohort.

Students are assigned to cohorts based on a balance between availability in a given cohort and indicated preference of students during the application process. The exact schedule of classes and the electronic credentials needed for online access are provided to students in their Admissions Package.

  • HRP I runs for 12 months, and HRP II runs for an additional 6 months beyond HRP I, for a total of 18 months.
  • HRP cohorts typically start the first (working) Monday of every quarter (January, April, July and October).
  • Registration for new HRP cohorts closes 2 months in advance of the start date. (For instance, students who want to participate in a program starting in January need to be registered by the end of October.) This is to ensure proper planning and management of cohort sizes.
  • HRP classes typically meet online twice a week; registered students have access to study and test material on the online platform every day of the week.
  • Special classes for organizations, groups or associations may be arranged outside of this standing schedule. (For group schedules, send email to .)

IDMANN Institute is committed to providing affordable, quality education for as many students as possible. The institution provides a standing bursary for students in most of our programs based on available financial resources. The goal of the bursary is to assist students in a particular demographic or grouping that may legitimately benefit from the program but may face financial challenges in covering the full cost of tuition.

IDMANN Challenge Bursary:

This program is supported by the IDMANN Challenge Bursary. The IDMANN Challenge Bursary is financial aid provided by IDMANN Institute and partner organizations that fund the Enterprise Development Fund. The IDMANN Challenge Bursary supports students according to the following criteria:

  1. The IDMANN Challenge Bursary only covers tuition, not the application fee. Awards are made AFTER students have applied and have been successfully admitted into the program.
  2. The IDMANN Challenge Bursary will only support the first ten (10) students to apply in the qualifying cohort. This means that students who apply early are more likely to be successfully considered for the bursary award. The Challenge Bursary is made on a "first-come first-awarded" basis. Students in eligible countries are STRONGLY encouraged to apply early and to indicate their intent to apply for the bursary award. (No special form is required, simply indicate in the application form.)  
  3. The IDMANN Challenge Bursary covers 50% of the tuition for students. It does NOT cover the application fee. 
  4. The IDMANN Challenge Bursary operates on a contributory basis. This means that students must pay their share of the tuition IN A TIMELY MANNER for the bursary to be applied. In the event that students fail to make their payments in a timely manner, the bursary award will automatically lapse and students will be responsible for the full tuition.
  5. Bursary awards are for a specific cohort in a specific course and cannot be transferred to another course. However, in the event that the award recipient needs to transfer to a different cohort within the same course, upon approval of their instructor, the bursary award may be transferred to the new cohort at the same level of support as in the previous cohort.
  6. The IDMANN Challenge Bursary is available subject to continued availability of funds to support the bursary. The Institute and supporting partners may terminate the program without prior notice. In any circumstance, students awarded a bursary will receive the committed support through the completion of their studies at IDMANN Institute.
  7. The IDMANN Challenge Bursary is available only to students applying to the program and are RESIDENT in the following countries at the time of application: Nigeria, Ghana, Sierra Leone, Liberia, Jamaica, Kenya, Tanzania, Guyana, Suriname, Haiti and Indonesia.

 

 National Service Bursary (Nigeria & Ghana):

  1. Graduates from post-secondary tertiary institutions in Ghana are required to participate in the National Service Scheme. Similarly, graduates from post-secondary tertiary institutions in Nigeria are required to participate in the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC).
  2. These programs are intended to support community and national development and to provide a transitional experience for young graduates by assigning them to varied places of employment during the service period. IDMANN Institute supports the motivation behind these national services programs and is proud to extend a unique bursary to active members.
  3. In support of this, ACTIVE members of these national service programs may apply for a National Service Bursary. The National Service Bursary covers 60% of the tuition for eligible applicants. It does NOT cover the application fee for applicants.
  4. To qualify for the National Service Bursary, applicants must be registered in the national service program (or received their call-up documents) at the time of application to the program. (Applicants cannot combine the Challenge Bursary and the National Service Bursary.)
  5. The National Service Bursary will only support the first one hundred (100) applicants in the qualifying cohort. This means that applicants who apply early are more likely to be successfully considered for the bursary award. The National Service Bursary is made on a "first-come first-awarded" basis. Students in eligible countries are STRONGLY encouraged to apply early and to indicate their intent to apply for the bursary award. (No special form is required, simply indicate in the application form.)  
  6. The National Service Bursary operates on a contributory basis. This means that students must pay their share of the tuition IN A TIMELY MANNER for the bursary to be applied. In the event that students fail to make their payments in a timely manner, the bursary award will automatically lapse and students will be responsible for the full tuition.
  7. Bursary awards are for a specific cohort in a specific course and cannot be transferred to another course. However, in the event that the award recipient needs to transfer to a different cohort within the same course, upon approval of their instructor, the bursary award may be transferred to the new cohort at the same level of support as in the previous cohort.
  8. The National Service Bursary is available subject to continued availability of funds to support the bursary. The Institute and supporting partners may terminate the program without prior notice. In any circumstance, students awarded a bursary will receive the committed support through the completion of their studies at IDMANN Institute.
