In this comprehensive prep course, you will explore the 5 functional areas of the HRCI PHR and SPHR certification examinations. You will also use our various tools to enhance your learning experience and retention.
Hello and Welcome to our PHR – SPHR Prep Course!
In the coming weeks, you will be presented with a lot of information. You will learn new concepts, review understood facts, and test your knowledge using study aids such as flash cards, practice exams, and our detailed study guide. You may at times feel overwhelmed by the comprehensive nature of this program. However, you will also feel very accomplished when you are sitting for – and obtain – your HRCI credential.
This is not a quick and easy prep course. Our course has been specifically designed to prepare you for the challenging exam that lies ahead. You should know that about 40 percent of the people who take an HR certification exam fail it on the first try. Entering this process with an unprepared and disorganized mind-set is just short of a guarantee you will not pass. No one can pass the exam for you. No one can prepare you for the exam. Your job is to prepare yourself. However, if you invest the time in consistent, focused studies, you will have a much greater chance of success than the average test taker. We are honored by your decision to make our prep course a part of your preparation to succeed.
You will to need to spend several hours a week studying. Most people look at their weekly schedule and find there is usually no a surplus of free time just lying around. So how do you find study time?
Well, it’s a balancing act and if you have a family at home, it may turn out to be a group effort.
Here are a few suggestions:
- Ask your family members to quiz you-get your spouse or kids involved and review flashcards.
- Spend your meal period at work studying away from your desk in private.
- Perhaps you get up a bit earlier than usual for a few weeks and review a chapter of the study or re-watch one or two of our videos.
- OR, Make the best of rush hour traffic and listen to our audio flash cards to and from work.
With enhanced commitment and focus on your goal of becoming a PHR or SPHR professional, you will weather this temporary flood of demand on your time and walk away from your HRCI exam with the satisfaction of knowing you were in charge of your own outcome. You’ll be able to say, “I made this happen!”
