Advance Your HR Career: HRCI Certification Preparation Courses

Executive EducationThe Human Resource Certification Institute (HRCI) has a 40 year legacy of setting the gold standard for HR mastery and excellence around the globe as well as being the sole provider of HR certifications supported by the National Commission for Certifying Agencies’ (NCCA) rigorous standards.

HRCI offers multiple certifications ranging from entry level to a veteran of the industry. 

Professional in Human Resources (PHR) or Senior Professional in Human Resources (SPHR)

Earning your PHR or SPHR credential will allow you to join the over 500,000 HRCI professionals worldwide who have proven they have the knowledge and ability to navigate the human resource field with efficiency and skill.

Our PHR and SPHR preparation classes take an in-depth look at the six areas that make up the HR Body of Knowledge as set forth by HRCI and the concepts and best practices that will be on the HRCI certification exams.

Our experienced instructors are experts in the HR field and will guide you on your path to certification while you:

  • learn practical information and real life examples that can apply in your daily job immediately;
  • receive thorough preparation from an accredited university; and
  • join a network of some of the top HR professionals in the nation.

The UD PHR/SPHR Exam pass rate is 25% higher than the national average. If you enroll in one of our courses and fail to pass your certification exam, you can retake the course for only $100.
