The testing is administered by the Human Resource Certification Institute (HRCI) and earning certification is a widely accepted indication that you are a knowledgeable and effective HR Professional. Our Certification Prep program is designed to help prepare you to take the certifying exam. This program does NOT include the test itself nor does it bestow certification. Certification is complete only after successful completion of the test.
This PHR/SPHR Certification Prep program utilizes a blended learning approach to make it convenient for you to learn the subject matter, and provides you with an opportunity to review the content and discuss real-life scenarios with seasoned HR Professionals.
As a participant you will complete E-Training modules on topics covered by the PHR & SPHR Certification Exams. These modules are organized by topic and review & quiz sessions are scheduled to cover one or more of the modules.
Each session is attended via webinar. All sessions are recorded for future review. It is strongly recommended that you attend each session "live" so you have ample opportunity to ask questions and participate in group discussions.
At the end of the program you will have the opportunity to take an Assessment Exam that will allow you to determine your knowledge level and readiness for taking the actual exam. E-Training modules must be completed prior to the associated Review & Quiz Session. Review & Quiz Sessions will be approximately two hours long depending on the topic and group participation.
