HRINZ Professional Development Programme

Why you should take a HRINZ PD course:

  • Applied learning - develop strategies to implement in your workplace
  • Continue your professional development
  • Network with peers and share experiences
  • Detailed course books provided
  • Earn CPD points

The world evolves and there will always be developments and changes in the way in which we approach HR. Professional Development is therefore imperative to career progression and enhancement.

At HRINZ we recognise the importance of Professional Development and the role it plays in our industry so we provide a vast selection of development options to ensure you can keep ahead of any changes and update your skillset through courses, webinars and conferences. These are run through-out the year in various centres across the country and they range from one hour up to three and a half days.

The majority of our courses are presented in a workshop format. They are interactive sessions which provide you with an opportunity to share ideas with others through group discussion and questioning. Our webinars are one hour presentations that are transmitted over the internet. They are focused on the facilitator presenting their material. Questions can be submitted by attendees via a text chat function but there is not an opportunity to speak directly to the presenter or the group.

Our courses and webinars are open for all to attend. HRINZ members are eligible for a discount.
