New Registered Apprenticeship Program

The Kansas Society for Human Resource Management (Kansas SHRM) has launched a new registered apprenticeship program. Kansas SHRM is recruiting businesses who are willing to have an apprentice enter an 18- to 24-month program during which they will be paired with an experienced supervisor/mentor working in human resources. The mentor will guide the apprentice as they learn on-the-job to perform the responsibilities of an HR specialist and complete the program’s web-based, self-study related instruction. The curriculum is provided by SHRM and additions or adjustments to the curriculum needed to meet individual company’s needs are welcome. For more details, contact Doris Queen.
