Preparing for the PHR® & SPHR® Examinations
The course follows a “study roadmap” designed to gradually introduce new subject matter while reinforcing material learned earlier to help students retain concepts over time and maximize their performance on test day.


The HR Certification Institute (HRCI) requires HR professionals sitting for the PHR or SPHR exams to have a combination of demonstrated work experience and education.  Eligibility is determined by the HRCI.  If you wish to take the PHR or SPHR exam, you must complete a separate application form online through the HRCI.  Neither the Complete HRCP Program nor this course is a substitute for the certification examination.  Students are solely responsible for verifying their eligibility to sit for the exam directly with the HRCI.  For more information on eligibility, exam dates, or to apply to take the exam, visit
