    Human resource development (HRD) is one of the fastest growing areas of professional endeavor in education and human service practice. It has been spurred by technological advances, organizational and social conditions and demographic changes. Overall, HRD encompasses education and training, organization development and career development activities within or related to the workplace. Professionals perform such roles as administrator/ manager, program designer, instructor/trainer and consultant.

    Florida State University has recognized that such a diverse field of professional practice requires diverse opportunities for individual growth and development. Consequently, a multi-disciplinary approach was used to identify academic courses that relate most directly to the functions, roles and competencies required of HRD practitioners. These courses can be taken as part of a regular graduate program of studies, or through enrollment as a part-time non-degree special student. Individual course may be taken, or a sequence of courses may be pursued, that lead to the Certificate in Human Resource Development.

    This program is provided by the Florida State University College of Education, through the Department of Educational Leadership and Policy Studies. This program enables individuals who cannot set aside job and family responsibilities for full-time collegiate study to gain an educational background in the human resource development field through part-time evening coursework. The certificate in Human Resource Development is designed for both practicing HRD/Training and Development professionals and those who aspire to enter HRD/Training and Development practice in some capacity.
    The HRD Certificate is available to all interested parties who have an earned undergraduate degree from a regionally accredited college or university. Degree seeking students from other graduate program at FSU find the HRD Certificate an attractive option to increase skills and credentials. Many students complete the program as special student.
