HR Certification Self-Study Course (2020)


The HR Certification Self-Study Course is designed to prepare you to pass your PHR, SPHR, SHRM-CP, or SHRM-SCP exams.  The course was developed by David Siler, SPHR, GPHR, SHRM-SCP, 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.

The Self-Study Course includes a Study Guide (paperback), a paperback booklet on the seven essential principles of HRM necessary to pass the exam (The Seven Princes), the .mp3 files that make up the Audio Set (downloaded from the LMS), flashcards, plus additional resources on our Learning Management System (LMS).  The audio files help put numerous HR topics in “plain English,” and includes information on the various exam areas, plus additional audio files on test taking tips.  Additional LMS resources include sample tests, training games, and videos.
