Announcements


 

NM EDGE and the New Mexico State Personnel Office Launch a New Certified Human Resource Professional Certification 

New Mexico EDGE and the NM State Personnel Office (SPO) have partnered to provide an NM Certified Human Resource Professional certification for students interested in gaining skills and knowledge within the field of human resources. 

In addition to gaining a skillset valuable for any current position, the State Personnel Office will recognize the completion of the 11-class certification and Culminating Experience as a substitution for 2 years of education or experience toward the minimum qualifications requirement for human resources positions with the State of New Mexico.

Questions? Please contact: Christy Green, NM EDGE Program Director, cgreen18@nmsu.edu


2024 Preset Class Rotation

In an effort to help students better plan for when classes needed for certification completion will be offered, we have developed a preset class rotation for each 2024 Honing Event.

Please note that there have been significant updates made over the 2023 list, so please be sure to reference the 2024 version.

If you have any questions please contact us at nmedge@nmsu.edu

Certificate Audit Submission Information

Our Spring Audit Window is now closed.

The Summer Audit window will be open from June 4th 2024, through June 27th, 2024.  During this time, you may request an audit of your completed classes to determine if you have met the class requirements for certification. 

If you have completed classes toward a certification, be sure to submit an audit during this open audit window.

Go to the NM EDGE Student Record and Enrollment Site.

    • Using the navigation bar on the left, select Certification Audit. Use the arrow to show the menu of certification choices, select the audit you want, and then submit. Please press submit ONLY once.
  • **NOTE** If you receive a "system error" message when processing the audit request, please let us know. We recommend that you submit an audit request via email to nmedge@nmsu.edu at that time.
  • The audit is to verify that you have completed all of your classes and to assign you an Academic Advisor to work with you on your Culminating Experience, and to prepare you for graduation.
  • For those of you who have completed all of your CPS and CPM classes, the Assessments are by invitation only, so please submit an audit and we will get back to you. Once we know who qualifies to be invited, we will notify you and set the date.

Thank you for your help as we strive to support you in achieving your goals.
