Unfortunately, in the field of HR the academic or theorectical knowledge and application for today's human behavior is nothing like the real world, practical application and interaction. Starting from the ground floor and becoming familiar or is the best way to gain true insight. Maybe you can get an HR Assistant, Coordinator or Generalist position and become a mentee, then work your way up. I did that and went back for MS and thank goodness I did because there was miminal correlation, although the concept was the same, the experience is like apples and oranges.

Do I need to take classes for anything in particular? I was thinking about going to MCCC and taking the Office Automation certificate program.

I have just received my certificate in human resource management, 4 years of schooling. Now, how do I get a job in my field, all of the jobs I have seen for human resources they are wanting candidates with 3+ years experience. Do I go for a position such as a HR assistant or what???

The things that HR Managers need to know that they are lacking is. After the interviews are over, let the candidates who came in know if they will advance to the next round or if they should be getting a rejection letter. Don't put you phone on voicemail all day long to avoid them. You expect candidates to provide you with salary exp etc, and you just kick them to the curb. If you don't plan to hire, why are you wasting everyones time. You do not pay candidates time for gas, parking, taking time off of work etc. At least have some repect. Some of you just interview to look busy. You can be let go just like anyone else.
