V3 Approved as SHRM “Preferred Provider” of Training

SHRM Preferred Provider

The V3 Program is extraordinarily pleased to report that the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) has approved the V3 Program to join their Preferred Provider network. V3 may now award SHRM Professional Development Credits (PDCs) for Human resource professionals seeking to recertify for SHRM-CPSM and SHRM-SCPSM certificates.

In November 2014, the Human Resource Certification Institute (HRCI) also authorized the V3 Program as an Approved Provider for HRCI continuing education credits toward PHR, SPHR, and GPHR recertification.

The V3 Core Curriculum educates employers on why hiring Veterans is a good business decision and how to build a business case for hiring veterans; trains employers on current best practices in Veteran recruiting, hiring, and retention; and provides resources to employers to help them connect with the Veteran talent pool. The V3 Supplemental Curriculum educates employers on a variety of subjects, including the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act (USERRA); Veteran On-the-Job Training and Apprenticeship Programs; the value of employing members of the National Guard and Reserve; using the Virginia Workforce Connection Database; and dispelling myths of PTSD.

Virginia Values Veterans’ status as SHRM Preffered Provider, as well as an HRCI Approved Provider brings an increased value to the program, and provides an even greater incentive for our private-sector partners in the Commonwealth to participate in the V3 initiative. We are excited about providing this valuable service to Human Resource professionals who have demonstrated their commitment — and their companies’ — to increasing employment opportunities for Virginia’s Veterans.
