That course, which begins Aug. 4, will be led by Keith Keindel, executive director of the Canadian Golf Industry Association.
Human Resources in the Golf Industry will focus on the professional application of human resource management practices in the golf industry. All aspects of people management will be covered including hiring, compensation, training/development, health/safety, performance management and employment law.
