IaPELRA is hosting Academy I: The Foundation of Labor Relations.
Academy I will give participants resources to achieve a better understanding of the basic principles and practices of labor relations. Through lively workshops and interactive exercises, participants sharpen their knowledge of "The Duty to Bargain", "Good Faith", "The Scope of Bargaining", "The Profile of an Excellent Negotiator" and writing important contract clauses. Participants will be given tools of the trade to assist them in preparing and organizing for bargaining and also in enforcing and administering the collective bargaining agreement. An overview of comparative negotiating processes illustrates various approaches to bargaining and tips for success.
The NPELRA Labor Relations Academy Certification Program is an innovative teaching program designed specifically for public sector labor relations and human resources professionals who are new to the field, as well as for experienced practitioners seeking additional training.
The unique four-step program leads to the distinctive title of:
Certified Labor Relations Professional (CLRP)
To receive the designation of CLRP, participants must complete Academies I, II, and III (academies may be completed in any order). Following the completion of all three academies, individuals may take an exam or submit a Labor Relations Professional Paper to be approved by the NPELRA Labor Relations Academy Committee prior to awarding certification. Additional academy details may be seen at: www.npelra.org.
