Asian Institute of Human Resource Management (AIHRM)

Updated: Apr 30, 2020

The Asian Institute of Human Resource Management ( AIHRM ) serves as the training and development arm of the Association. The AIHRM plans, conducts and evaluates the training and professional development programs of PMAP, in response to the needs of HRM executives and managers, officers and staff of member-companies, and independent HRM practitioners.

Throughout the years, PMAP has presented a varied menu of development programs focusing on specific areas of HRM practice. Non-curricular programs are the training seminars and workshops conducted on a monthly basis by expert HRM practitioners from the ranks of PMAP members. Whether for professional or personal development, members enjoy substantial discounts on all AIHRM programs and other development activities. For companies with specific training needs, the AIHRM also develops tailor-fit training programs and conducts these as in-house seminars.

Curricular programs, on the other hand, are the certificate courses conducted in PMAP-partner schools, and which lead to the completion of a Diploma in HRM (DHRM) degree. The DHRM program aims to fulfill the need of HR practitioners to sharpen their skills in HRM and expand their knowledge of the profession. The collaborating schools include San Beda College Alabang, University of Asia and the Pacific (UA&P), Xavier University - Ateneo de Cagayan (CDO) and University of Mindanao (Davao) — to cater to our members and business professionals from the southern part of the country. AIHRM also offers graduate degree programs namely MS in Human Capital and Organization Development in UA&P and MA in People Management in Lyceum of the Philippines University. Aside from public workshops, in-house training and consultancy services and diploma programs, AIHRM also conducts special learning events. Here are some of the other events lined up this year:
