Human Resources Development (HRD)

Human Resources Development offers courses to prepare adults or dislocated workers for today's workplace. These courses are designed to help unemployed and underemployed students upgrade skills and develop a winning attitude for getting and keeping employment or further training.

By participating in HRD training, students increase their chances of finding employment, maintain confidence, and acquire skills needed for the competitiveness of the global economy. Students learn how to search for jobs, research employers, accurately complete applications, create resumes and employment letters, practice interview strategies, and use computers and other technology for employment.

Various courses are offered to introduce students to various occupations. HRD courses are free to adults who meet any of the following criteria:

  1. Currently unemployed
  2. Received notification of a pending layoff
  3. Working and eligible for the Federal Earned Income Tax Credit
  4. Working and earning wages at or below 200% of the federal poverty guidelines

A high school education is not required for enrollment in HRD classes. Classes are located in Chatham, Harnett, and Lee Counties.

Depending on the courses, registration fees range from $50- $65 for those persons who are not eligible for a fee waiver.
