Why HR Certification Prep Courses?

When companies are looking to hire someone for an HR position, they are looking at experience, education, HR certification, and fit.  Surprisingly, less than 15% of HR professionals are certified.  With that being said, certification is one way to set yourself apart from the crowd.

 

Additionally, not everyone who takes a certification exam passes.  In fact, the pass rate is between 50%-70%.  However, the fact that someone is taking the time to ensure that they are up on the HR body of knowledge is a professional step in the right direction.

Why the Update?

SHRM updated the content of the exam in December of 2021 and this course structure reflects that update.  Additionally after several cycles of providing the "HR Content Sessions Live via Zoom" I have discovered that it is difficult to have active engagement.  Thus, the HR Content is available for you with 6 20-30 minute presentations along with PPTs and quiz questions.  I have also selected a book that will go along with our HR content presentations that should further reinforce the material presented.  

 

I have been teaching HR Certification Prep Courses for about 30 years now and this format since 2018.  Since 2018 I have worked with close to 250 HR professionals from around the country and have a 89%+ pass rate for those who take their HR Certification Exam.  This new structure will allow you the flexibility to go over the material at your own pace and will allow more time for study sessions (I have added 6 hours on to the course.)
