Introduction to APC: Q&A Webinar
If you are a prospective student looking to undertake AHRI’s Practising Certification Program, join us for this interactive Q&A webinar where the AHRI team will give you an overview of the program and structure followed by a chance to chat directly with the AHRI’s Standards & Learning team who can answer any questions you may have in relation to workload, timing, resources and workplace support.
 
The course is an intensive teaching model with 4 units, where students integrate their current work circumstances with their learning across a variety of strategic Human resources theories and practices. This work-integrated program examines in-depth the key theories and functions of HR and how you can apply them to real problems in the business environment. Assessments are a blend of academic writing and critical analysis as well as business and professional report writing.  The final Unit 4 ‘Capstone Project’ consists of a work-based project where the real business impact of your HR initiative is measured and assessed.
 
  • Unit 1: The strategic HR professional
  • Unit 2: The HR organisational environment
  • Unit 3: Workforce design, development and performance
  • Unit 4 Capstone: Applied project in organisational capability

As part of the webinar, our team can cover any questions you might have about whether the APC might be the right pathway to certification for you, the difference between workshop and distance modes, assessment queries, workplace support or RPL and CT eligibility and requirements.

This is your last chance to connect with our team prior to the next intake closing date on 15th August, with our next intake starting on 29 August, so have your questions ready and we look forward to chatting.

Our Student Services team are always available at [email protected] and can help with any specific questions you might have that we are not able to cover off in the Q&A webinar.

WA Midwest network
The introduction of the Work Health and Safety Act (2020) highlights that a person conducting a business or undertaking (PCBU) must manage the risk of psychosocial hazards in the workplace. But what are they? Psychosocial hazards at work are aspects of work and work situations which can lead to psychological or physical harm. Workplace psychosocial hazards are related to the psychological and social conditions of the workplace rather than just the physical conditions.

This session aims to give a quick introduction to psychological and social hazards in the workplace and provide information on some resources available for businesses to consider how they may approach psychosocial risks and how to minimise, prevent or manage them to help to meet their responsibilities under WHS legislation.
