Would it be beneficial to get a FMLA certification? I saw Shrm offers one online, has anyone taken that and what are your thoughts?
I have a Bachelors degree in HR management and at almost 2 years of experience but have never handled FMLA.

I wouldn’t see it as beneficial unless you’re interested in specialized roles that focus specifically on benefits/ leave administration. FMLA has pretty standard guidelines across the board. I’d suggest reading up in the topic first. Perhaps running your questions by a HR colleague or mentor. If you find that you’re still having trouble grasping it, then pursue the formal learning via the certification.

It's always beneficial to expand your knowledge base. If you've got the time and you're interested in learning more about that area of the business to become more marketable, then go for it!

Everything I’ve ever learned in my years of 11 and 7 in benefits including leave, I learned from in the job training. I am not degreed or certified. However I am finishing school next year just as a personal goal and everything I’m learning in school (HR degree) doesn’t come close to what I have learned working
