Human Resources Development Program
Human Resources Development (HRD) focuses on the development of basic workplace skills by providing skill assessment services, employability skills training, and career development counseling to unemployed and underemployed adults.
HRD is the framework for helping employees develop their personal and organizational skills, knowledge, and abilities in the effort to place, retain, or motivate them.
The HRD Program is state funded through the N.C. Community College System. The program is a pre-vocational and pre-employment skills training program designed to educate and prepare persons for success in the workplace. HRD is mainly intended for those persons who are unemployed, underemployed, dislocated workers, or employed, but seeking skills upgrading or retraining. The purpose of the Human Resource Development Program is to educate and train individuals for success in the workplace. HRD classes offer interviewing skills, resume/application preparation.
