Gain a competitive advantage as a Certified Labor Relations Leader.

Aligning your labor relations strategy with business and operational strategies is critical for achieving and sustaining a competitive advantage. The Certified Labor Relations Leader (CLRL) program will deepen your understanding of labor relations concepts. The examination will enable you to differentiate yourself through professional certification.

Only those who have participated in Negotiating Labor/Management Agreements for Competitive Advantage and either Administering the Labor Contract, Managing Grievances and Preparing for Arbitration or Managing in a Unionized Organization are eligible to take the certification examination.

The certification examination is taken online and is offered in two periods per year. It contains a variety of question types, including multiple choice, answer completion, and short answer. The scenarios used in the questions reflect real-world scenarios.

The examination covers:

  • Knowledge and application of concepts
  • Problem solving and strategizing
  • Analysis and evaluation

For your convenience... The study materials for the Certified Labor Relations Leader examination are now included in the price. No longer do you need to purchase the study materials and then pay again for the examination. When you register for the examination, you will receive access to all of the study materials. As a labor relations professional, you’ll refer to these materials again and again as you lead your organization's labor relations strategy.

When you register, you will receive a copy of the book Labor Relations: Striking a Balance, over a $250 value!

Prepare for your future today. You may begin to study for the CLRL examination at any time.
