Developing Competencies for HR Success is a comprehensive training program that teaches the benefits of understanding human resource competencies, how to apply them and how to integrate that knowledge into your business plan. This training is a great way to elevate yourself as a strategic player within your organization, from managing people issues to managing people-related business issues. Participants learn through discussion, exercises and assessments using the International Public Management Association for Human Resources (IPMA-HR) model as a vehicle for dialogue about changes happening within and around human resources. This comprehensive training course was developed by IPMA-HR to provide mid to senior level human resources professionals who are committed to working in the public sector, with a foundation for success. This course culminates in a multiple-choice exam used to assess your understanding of how the 20 competencies are tied to the success of HR professionals. A passing grade on the exam takes you a step closer toward achieving your professional certification and becoming an IPMA-Senior Certified Professional (IPMA-SCP).  For requirements and application information refer to
