    The SHRMJC PHR/SPHR Certification Study Group offers class participants a comprehensive classroom experience, as well as individual advice and direction from certified instructors and study group opportunities. Class materials are provided to all participants in advance of the weekly sessions. The class will utilize the Human Resources Certification Preparation (HRCP) program which is included in your cost. SHRMJC will be offering a comprehensive PHR/SPH Certification Study Group beginning on September 15, 2014 and continuing each Monday from 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM. The study group will be held at Ottawa University, Wilson Room. This site offers easy access and ample free parking. Complete directions and maps will be sent to all class participants.

    This course is specifically designed to help participants prepare to pass the PHR/SPHR certification exam. The 11 week sessions offer a broad review of the human resources practice areas which are covered on the exam. The SHRMJC course is different than many other courses offered, as it not only utilizes the materials through the HRCP Program but also presented by professional Human Resources Professionals who are subject matter experts currently working in the field - and they have successfully passed the certification exam! They are very committed to preparing YOU to pass the exam as well!
