The Human Resource Management Academy, using the SHRM® Learning System for PHR®/ SPHR® Certification Preparation, is a 40-hour program designed primarily for individuals seeking the most sought-after HR certification as  Professional in Human Resources (PHR) or Senior Professional in Human Resources (SPHR).   It also provides you -- even those of you not seeking certification -- with a comprehensive and accelerated option for professional development.  Participants gain a generalist point of view, refresh key ideas and concepts, strengthen their understanding of core HR competencies and increase productivity.

As an added advantage, we use the newly updated 2014 SHRM Learning System.  It features up-to-date content and advanced tools that streamline study time, accelerate learning and build confidence for passing the PHR or SPHR exam. 

Besides being a powerful tool to assist you in preparing for these two certification exams, the SHRM® Learning System for PHR® / SPHR® Certification Preparation also delivers professional development for you and your HR Department, providing a solid foundation for managing the HR challenges you face in today's demanding work environment. Additionally, those who pass the PHR or SPHR certification exam by January 31, 2015, are eligible for the new SHRM-CP or SHRM-SCP certification at no additional cost.

By enrolling in this course, you’ll benefit from
  • An experienced, certified instructor or instructor team
  • The SHRM Learning System® for PHR®/SPHR® Certification Preparation, ranked the #1 certification prep tool
  • A structured learning experience that keeps you on track
  • Opportunities to network and learn from HR peers

The program is offered in partnership with the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM), and its local chapter of Central Texas Human Resource Management Association (CTHRMA).  Temple College is the only SHRM college/university partner between Round Rock and Dallas. 

Each participant receives the SHRM Learning System® for PHR®/SPHR® Certification Preparation as part of their registration.
