The International College of the Cayman Islands (ICCI), on Saturday 19 November, presented six students with Certificates of Achievement at the conclusion of the Society for Human Resources Management (SHRM) Certification Exam Review Course, signed by SHRM President, Johnny C. Taylor.  Current students now have the choice of taking the exam in the U.S.A, or in the comfort of their own home, or in an alternate approved location by Prometric, the testing agency affiliated with SHRM. 

ICCI’s Registrar Ms. Melisa Hamilton took the course and said that she found it extremely beneficial. “It requires students to put in three times the amount of time on our own at home between each of the Saturday classes to truly learn all that is discussed in each class. I certainly believe it would be much more difficult to sit the exam without having the benefit of the in-class discussions, reading the text, and monitoring my progress with each class.”

HR and Office Manager at Massive Equipment Rentals & Sales, Ms Jennifer Leach-Tippetts, said textbooks were extremely beneficial to studies between classes and encourages future students to order the text a few weeks before the course starts to have it for day one. She said: “The SHRM online learning resource center was awesome!”

Ms Brittany Miller, Human Resources Officer for the Ministry of Employment, Border Control and Labour, was also pleased with the course and said, “I encourage other HR professionals to take the course to help them prepare to sit the exam. I am very pleased with the course work and could not have done it without the prep course. Now, I feel ready and I’m looking forward to sitting the exam.”

Ms. Rebecca Jordison, Administrative and Financial Manager for the Department of Environment, said “Taking the prep course has helped me to stay focused. The structure is important to have, to help us stay on tract.” She believes without the prep course she might not do as well in the exam.

ICCI Dean and Chief Academic Officer, Dr. Aleza Beverly presented students with their certificates at the ICC campus at McLaughlin Hall, in Newlands, while Trustee and Course Leader and Facilitator, Mrs. Colleen Williams prepared to coordinate the final review class with the group, which is the fourth cohort held in the Cayman Islands, with a 75% pass rate currently. ICCI IT Specialist Mr. Chris Balraj was on hand to set up zoom links for Co-Facilitator and former CISHRP President, Ray Swartz, who recently relocated overseas from Grand Cayman and for any students who were unable to make the class in person.

ICCI is recognized by SHRM to offer the SHRM Certification Review and Preparation Course for the SHRM-CP (Certified Professional) or the SHRM-SCP (Senior Certified Professional).  Courses that are taught by experience practitioners and Cayman based SHRM Certified Human Resources Professionals.
