Lake Washington Institute of Technology is a HR Certification Institute (HRCI®) Approved Provider. As a HRCI® Approved Provider, many of our classes qualify for PHR®/SPHR®/GPHR®/PHR-CA®/SPHR-CA® recertification credits. Individuals may want to take one class, several classes or complete the certificate.

Depending on background and education level, a student will be able to find jobs in entry to mid-level positions as a generalist or in the areas of human resource management, employment and recruitment, total rewards/compensation, benefits, employee and labor relations, risk management/safety and security, and training and development.

LWTech has an active SHRM Student Chapter, which is a SHRM Superior Merit Award Winner

This program is focused on evening courses, thus allowing people who are employed to upgrade their skills and receive a certificate. It is the student’s responsibility to discuss sequencing and work out their individual schedule with a counselor or adviser. Any developmental coursework a student may be required to complete may increase the program length.
