Human Resources Institute Begins Conversion Courses
Nigeria’s leading human resources and strategic management institute, the Dynamic Institute, Lagos, Thursday announced the first batch of its conversion courses.
In a statement issued in Lagos by its registrar, Mr. Abel Minna, the institute said a conversion course with the theme ‘Human Resources and Strategic Management: A Key Factor to Organizational Performance’
would begin on Saturday, December 7, 2013 at Lagos Hall, LCCI Conference & Exhibition Centre, Bola Ahmed Tinubu Way, Central Business District, Alausa, Ikeja.
“This institute is committed to increasing the supply of high-level human resources skills and to supporting job-seekers into employment by providing opportunities for graduates from other disciplines to
re-skill for the expanding employment opportunities in the human resources and strategic management area,” the statement said.
The statement continued: “The objective of the course is to take graduates in non-human resources fields and augment their skills and knowledge in readiness to begin a career in the human resources industry. It is also designed to ensure that graduates are given both a base for continuing self-development and a set of skills which are transferable to the broader strategic management industry. These skill sets are reinforced with a strong emphasis on teamwork.”
The course is also to produce graduates with the required theoretical and hands-on skills to allow them to work and participate effectively in private and public sectors.
