PHR/SPHR Test Prep

This intensive program is designed primarily for individuals seeking the most sought-after HR certification as a Professional in Human Resources (PHR®) or Senior Professional in Human Resources (SPHR®).

As an added advantage, we use the newly updated 2014 SHRM Learning System. It features up-to-date content and advanced tools that streamline study time, accelerate learning, and build confidence for passing the PHR or SPHR exam.

This course is offered in partnership with the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM). The course investment includes all course materials but does not cover registration for the PHR or SPHR examinations.

The SHRM Learning System includes six modules covering the entire HR Certification Institute body of knowledge so participants learn everything needed for the PHR or SPHR exam. Modules were updated to reflect the new HR practice and legislation in the HR Certification Institute’s body of knowledge and include: Business Management and Strategy, Workforce Planning and Employment, Human Resource Development, Compensation and Benefits, Employee and Labor Relations, and Risk Management.
