PHR/SPHR Certified Preparation Courses: Thinking about becoming certified?

There are a number of advantages to obtaining your PHR, SPHR and California certification. In addition to being a public recognition of professional achievement, certification shows mastery of our field and a commitment to staying informed of new developments. HR professionals must know how to deal effectively with all aspects of the field, including strategic planning, international business issues, compensation and benefits, HR development, employee rights, and emerging HR issues. Certification affirms your ability to understand our profession on a broader scale.

Time to Recertify?
To retain the PHR, SPHR or California designations, the HR Certification Institute requires all certificants to recertify every three years either by accumulating 60 educational hours through continuing education, instruction, on-the-job experience, research and publishing, leadership activities, or membership in a national or international professional organization such as the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM), or by retaking the examination (“recertification by examination”). For more information about how to recertify by retaking the exam, please refer to the most recent version of the GPHR or PHR and SPHR Certification Handbook. The cost to recertify by documenting 60 credit hours of continuing education is $10.

Prep Courses
The SHRM Learning System Certification Preparation Courses presents an in-depth review of the students’ professional knowledge and skills and broadens his/her perspective and understanding of the field. The twelve week program consists of six instructional modules encompassing key areas in HR Management as outlined by SHRM. Students review test taking tips and take weekly timed examinations.
