Are you wanting to prepare for the newest HR certification exams, but you are busy, you can’t miss time during the day at work, you really need some scheduling flexibility and would like more than one option? Now, from the comfort of your own home or office, you can participate in one of the most comprehensive HR cert-prep (certification preparatory) programs to be found anywhere.

Getting a PHR® (Professional in Human Resources®), SHRM-CP (Certified Professional), SHRM-SCP (Senior Certified Professional) or SPHR (Senior Professional in Human Resources®) certification will distinguish you from your peers, build your self-confidence, and earn you greater respect within the HR profession.

Attendees will focus on the major areas of HR: (1) US Laws and Acts, (2)Training and Development, (3) Compensation and Benefits, (4) Recruitment and Selection, (5) Employee and Labor Relations, (6) Business Management, Leadership, and Strategy, and (7) Global HR.
