HRCI’s Associate Professional in Human Resources™ (aPHR™) is the perfect certification to help fast-track your career growth and provide you with the confidence to launch into the HR profession. To be eligible for the aPHR, you must have a high school diploma or global equivalent. No HR experience is required since this is a knowledge-based credential.

Is the aPHR
Right for Me?

Are you….

  • new to HR?
  • early in your career and beginning to take on operational vs administrative responsibilities?
  • responsible for the oversight of your organization’s HR function?
  • seeking to learn the fundamentals of HR in order to be a more effective supervisor or manager to your team?

The aPHR prep course is an intensive review of the essentials of human resource management, from employment law to employee and labor relations to compensation and benefits to safety.  It serves as thorough preparation for those pursuing their aPHR certification and as a standalone course for non-HR professionals.

How do I apply for the aPHR exam?

Your application and exam fee are both included in your bundled aPHR prep course package. Approximately halfway through class, your instructor will provide you with a unique voucher code to use at HRCI.org. Simply pop this code into your online application!

Why do you use the HRCP prep materials vs another provider?

HRCP has been producing quality prep materials for the PHR/SPHR and other HRCI exams since 1995. We believe they are the most comprehensive study materials on the market, particularly when combined with HR Cert Prep Pros’ expansive slides.

Is it OK for me to use my friend's HRCP and HRCPP study materials?

No, unfortunately not. When you purchase HRCP and HRCPP’s study materials, you agree that they are for your use only.

Why might I want to upgrade to the higher level of the HRCP.com materials?

We find that most of our students use only the print version of the materials. If you would like to be able to review the material on your computer or tablet and/or listen to individual pages in audio, then you may want to upgrade. Please note that, at this time, audio is available on a page-by-page basis; there is no download feature.
