Testimonials

What they say about the program...

I was recently invited to join the faculty of the Human Resource Certificate Program at Sonoma State. I have been very impressed with the quality of the other faculty, the students in the program, and the materials used for instruction. I highly recommend the program if you want a high quality program with interactive instruction and a transfer of skills that can be applied to the workplace immediately.

The SSU Human Resource Certificate Program was great. Having HR specialists serve as instructors for each of the content areas was so much more valuable than having only one instructor for the entire program. I was also pleasantly surprised by the fact that job referrals were made to participants. I am really enjoying the new job as a Recruiter-Employment Coordinator at WorkRite Ergonomics Inc. I accepted as a result of a referral.

The SSU Certificate Program was very valuable for me. In addition to a high quality experience in the classes, networking has had unexpected benefits. We were so impressed with some of the instructors that we have established consulting relationships with them. The HR Certificate faculty continues to be a resource for us in solving difficult HR problems.
