SPHR/PHR Certification: Preparation Course
UC Davis Extension students have attained 100 percent passage rate for both the SPHR and PHR certification examinations!
If you've been planning to earn your Professional Human Resources (PHR®) or Senior Professional in Human Resources (SPHR®) designation, now is the time to enroll in this updated and expanded Human Resource Certification Institute (HRCI) exam preparation course based on the SHRM Learning System.

Prepare yourself for the exam as you examine strategic management practices, workforce planning and employment, total rewards, compensation and benefits, human resource development, employee and labor relations, occupational health, safety, security and risk management.
Expect to spend eight to 10 hours of study time per week in addition to classroom time in order to successfully complete the national certification exam. Enrollment two weeks before the start date is highly recommended to ensure that your course materials are available at the first session. There are no refunds for course materials that have been opened. For more information about certification, or recertification, visit the HRCI website at www.hrci.org.
