You don’t need any prior experience or qualifications to enrol on this Foundation Level 3 HR Certificate.
It’s ideal if you’re just beginning your HR career and would like to study a shorter course than the full CIPD Level 3 Diploma.
If English is your second language, we recommend you have an IELTS 6.5/ESOL Level 2 or equivalent, but we're happy to review your case on an individual basis.
Your course and assignments are fully online.
You'll study all 4 core units, then your choice of 2 optional units.
For full details of what you’ll learn on each unit, download our CIPD course guide.
