HR professionals that would like to receive credit towards their Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) designation can do so after completing online courses from International Management Assistance Corporation (IMAC). In business for over 25 years, IMAC has been providing security, risk management, and business continuity services to companies all across the U.S.

The HR Certification Institute (HRCI) has pre-approved the accredited courses, which have been developed by experts in the HR industry to assist with further professional development in HR careers. The most popular courses have been:

  • workplace violence
  • nonviolent confrontation
  • high-risk terminations
  • work stoppage management

Rob Shuster, vice president of protective services and training, states, “Our newly accredited courses for HR professionals are certain to provide a real career edge. We are happy to have our very current and carefully-developed curriculum formally recognized by the HRCI, and look forward to imparting the latest industry knowledge, best practices, and training to as many eager learners as possible.”

The security education team at IMAC gathers HR experts who teach primarily on the application of field-tested concepts and strategies to equip students with the information needed to succeed in the industry. The academy offers more than twenty courses that cater to HR professionals and offers workplace violence and safety training for security professionals and executives.

IMAC’s Labor Dispute and Work Stoppage Conference will be held in Arizona on May 10 and 11th, 2012. For those who attend, 7.5 HRCI credits will be awarded toward their SHRM designation. For more information, visit
