<< Back to Learning Options

Recertification Hours: GPHRs, HRBPs and HRMPs may earn up to 21 recertification hours when attending these seminars for professional development.

Program Overview

Our intensive PHR/SPHR certification preparation seminars, combined with the SHRM Learning System, present a comprehensive and detailed review of the current PHR/SPHR body of knowledge. By attending, you will be able to identify areas of strength and build on them. You will also see where you need further concentrated study in preparation for taking either certification exam.
Gain a head start on your studying before the seminar begins, and you will gain increased benefits from attending. These certification preparation seminars should not be considered your only preparation but are a very valuable step that will help you focus your study efforts to maximize your results. 


  • Led by qualified and certified instructors.
  • Classroom environment provides networking opportunities.
  • Homework assignments help reinforce seminar sessions.
  • Sample test questions and periodic progress checks help keep you on schedule.
