"I have been a people manager for 15 years and have been recruiting for a high profile company for 2 years so I thought it's about time I get a recruiter designation at the end of my name. I've been doing the work anyway. I did a lot of research and found IPM had what I was looking for with the Professional Recruiter accreditation program. My greatest surprise is that I really learned some new techniques and knowledge that make my life at work easier. The course is very good and user friendly with real life examples. Also, the customer service at IPM is what takes them above and beyond my expectations. I have already recommended the program to my colleagues!" Michelle A, Toronto

I often refer to information taken from your magazine when teaching leadership and providing career counselling. " Donna H, Vancouver, BC.
IPM's Associations provide great networking opportunities for HR and management industry professionals on a variety of employer-conscious related topics. One of the biggest differentiators at IPM conferences is that participants have the opportunity to mix and mingle with a variety of people in an ideal ballroom round table setting for the entire day's event. We get that personal connection more readily and build relationships that will be sustainable for years. I personally have developed an excellent network of HR managers within my industry sector by regularly attending these events." Lindsay G., Toronto

"I have told everyone about your programs. I did a BA with a speciality in organizational development. I did a MA in Leadership and Training. I have a long list of conferences in Human Resources, Labour relations, municipal finance, etc. That said this course is awesome. It consolidates the highlights of what I have learned in those program into a practical, THIS IS WHAT YOU OUGHT TO DO course that you can do at your convenience. I know from my university education that MUCH of what is in your program is based on some of the most contemporary management evidence. For any organization where you can.t take people away from the workplace but you desperately need continuity of learning and changed behaviour, this program is stellar! " B. Browett, Hamilton
"I attended my first IPM workshop today and felt it was a worthwhile use of my time. I have for some time been debating about joining one of the associations and undertaking an accreditation program. I did both when I returned to my office and will likely be signing up for two additional accreditation programs. The special rate offered makes it difficult to resist. I am particularly impressed by the ability to have a total of 10 participants for each program and will be encouraging my staff to undertake the programs as well. Thank you for your efforts to provide workshops and programs in the Calgary market place. With our fast pace, it is programs like yours that are short and/or self-study that fill a need traditional courses cannot." W.Crawford, Calgary
