Villanova University Updates Its Human Resource Management Course Offered 100% Online Course revised to follow HR Certification Institute's new 2012 Body of Knowledge helping prepare students for the updated PHR® and SPHR® certification exams

TAMPA, Fla., Feb. 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Villanova University, ranked by U.S. News & World Report as the #1 Regional University in the North for nearly two decades, is pleased to announce that their online Human Resource Management course has been revised. Beginning January 1, 2012, the courses now incorporate the full scope of the HR Certification Institute's (HRCI) recently modified body of knowledge, including changes in the areas of Business Management & Strategy and Compensation & Benefits.

The Human Resource Management course, part of Villanova's 3-course Master Certificate in Human Resource Management, has been updated to not only reflect the recent Body of Knowledge changes, but also features over 18 hours of enhanced video lectures given by Villanova's expert faculty. The courses also incorporate interactive, skill-enhancing simulations that will better prepare students for the new PHR® and SPHR® certification exams.

"Villanova University is committed to providing students with the most up-to-date information so that they can successfully prepare for PHR® and SPHR® certification," said Susan Warner, ESQ, SPHR® and Villanova HR faculty member. "As an instructor for Villanova's online Human Resource Management program, I believe that these important updates will be enormously helpful and will instill confidence in students that they have the knowledge needed to prepare for their human resources certification exams."

The 12-week 100% online course, powered by University Alliance technology, provides students with the flexibility of 24/7 access, and the video-based e-learning model allows students to pause, rewind and replay video lectures at their own pace. As part of the program, students will also receive the complete 2012 SHRM Human Resource Learning System textbooks, and one year of online access to practice exams which provide more than 1,600 questions, case studies and valuable study materials worth over $800.
