UCCI students earn HR credentials

| 24/03/2009

(CNS): Two Caymanian students at the University College of the Cayman Islands recently earned the Professional in Human Resources (PHR) certification. Katrina Parchment and Regina Bennett sat the Human Resource Certification Institute’s PHR exam earlier in the academic year and are the first UCCI students to earn this distinguished qualification. The certification, awarded by the HR Certification Institute, signifies that recipients possess the theoretical knowledge and practical experience in human resource management necessary to pass a rigorous examination and demonstrates a mastery of the body of knowledge in the field.

Bennett said she took the SHRM programme to expand her knowledge and enhance her qualifications by earning a globally recognized credential in the HR profession. “This achievement both challenges me to continue learning and motivates me to keep striving for career advancement,” she said.

Parchment added that the commitment and focus required for the programme is significant. “My hard work and dedication to the programme was rewarded when I passed the PHR exam. It feels good to know that the knowledge and credentials I have gained has further strengthened my capabilities as an HR professional,” she noted.

Dr Carolyn Mathews, Director of Executive Training and Graduate studies and instructor for the programme, said she is particularly proud of the accomplishments of these two students. “It is a wonderful achievement that as a result of their study two HR Masters Degree students from UCCI have received professional certification from the Human Resources Certification Institute in the United States. Congratulations from all at UCCI.”

The HR Certification Institute is the credentialing body for human resource professionals and is affiliated with the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM), the world’s largest organization dedicated exclusively to the human resource profession.
