Course Duration-The course would be for a total duration of 120 hours. These could be completed in the following ways-

4 months weekend course ( 7.5 Hours on Sat/Sun)
One month course ( 7.5 hours Mon-Friday) for students during vacation
The recruitment function is one of the most important functions in the process of organisation building. Nonetheless, the emphasis on this activity and the availability of trained resources to execute this function is grossly inadequate. Correspondingly, the staffing industry in India is coming of age and the entire field of recruitment, selection, staffing & resource planning is getting increasingly specialised. There are barely any specialised courses addressing this need and even the HR MBA’s fleetingly cover the subject.
This course has thus been designed to provide a trained workforce to recruitment teams in any industry, as well as specifically for Staffing firms.
