For more information regarding the exam and the application process, visit the HR Certification Institute website at www.hrci.org. The HR Certification Institute suggests that all interested parties review the certification information handbook before applying for the exam. Candidates can register for the next available examination online or complete a paper application. To request a handbook/application, please visit the HR Certification Institute website and use the online form or write to firstname.lastname@example.org.
To be eligible for the PHR, SPHR or GPHR exam, you must have at least two years of HR exempt-level experience as a practitioner, educator, researcher, or consultant. It is not necessary to be a member of SHRM in order to qualify. The PHR exam consists of HR generalist information at the operational and technical level, or ”nuts and bolts” level. The SPHR exam addresses HR generalist information at the strategic and policy level. The HR Certification Institute strongly recommends that candidates taking the PHR exam have at least two years of exempt-level HR experience, and candidates seeking SPHR certification have at least six years of exempt-level HR experience.
You will not be alone in preparing for the exam!! HRATV is dedicated to assisting eligible members who wish to take up the challenge of the PHR, SPHR or GPHR exam. HRATV supports its members seeking certification by organizing study groups. If you are interested in joining a study group, please contact Valerie Davis, SPHR, at (208) 377-0110 or via e-mail at email@example.com. The mission of the Human Resources Association of Treasure Valley is to promote professional excellence in the development of those who are qualified and wish to pursue their Professional Certification. In support of that mission, the organization awards scholarships to members who are studying for PHR/SPHR/GPHR Certification. Click here for additional information.
