PHR / SPHR Self-Study Course (2015 Version)


sampleWouldn't it be great if you could study while getting other things done?  This program allows you to do just that!  The PHR / SPHR Self Study Course covers all six exam topics and was developed by David Siler, SPHR, GPHR, HRBP, HRMP, an award-winning lecturer to businesses and HR professionals on many HR related topics. With more than 30 years of experience as a senior level HR practitioner, he is well respected in the HR field for his extensive knowledge of the laws and trends, both nationally and in North and South Carolina.

The Self-Study Course includes an audio CD Set (12 CD's) that helps put numerous HR topics in "plain English".  For busy HR Professionals on the go, this program lets you absorb much of the material while commuting to work, walking the dog, working out, etc.  In addition, the Self Study Course includes online training videos and class lectures that coincide with the study materials. This course includes access to our Learning Management System (LMS) to view a pre-recorded (video) PHR/SPHR Prep Course taught by David Siler, who has an overall 90% pass rate for his PHR/SPHR Prep Course.
