This program is designed for those individuals who would like to enter the HR profession or have been hired in an HR capacity and would like to fast-track their career growth by proving a foundational knowledge of Human Resources.  The course materials and emphasis align with the HR Body of Knowledge areas and corresponding weights devoted to each area on the exam.  Statistics show that people who take a facilitated preparation course have a higher exam pass rate of 85-90% compared to a 50% exam pass rate for all who sit for the certification exam.

Eligibility for the course is a High School Diploma or GED.  HR experience is not required as this is a knowledge-based credential.  The cost of the program includes complete course materials for the aPHR exam.
