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. The aPHR certification is the first-ever HR certification designed for professionals who are just beginning their HR career or seeking to enter the HR field. Jumpstart your knowledge and confidence and become proficient in HR operations, employment law, recruitment, compensation, benefits, HR development, employee and labor relations, and safety, health and security.
This course is an intensive review of the essentials of human resource management and serves as thorough preparation for those pursuing their aPHR certification as well as a standalone course for non-HR professionals. The course incorporates study tips, test-taking strategies, practice questions, in-class exercises and discussions, and exam-specific final assessments developed exclusively by HR Cert Prep Pros to supplement your HRCP study materials.
Eligibility: Students must have a high school diploma or global equivalent. No HR experience is required, as this is a knowledge-based credential.
Required Materials: All students need the Prep for Success material package during the course. These materials come with your course registration and include:  HRCP’s printed materials, flashcards, and online practice test portal, and  HR Cert Prep Pros’ exclusive slide decks and handouts. You can add online books & audio for $50.
Optional Exam Bundles: You can also purchase discounted HRCI bundles from HR Cert Prep Pros. This bundle includes an aPHR application and exam voucher and HRCI’s online aPHR practice test. View the discounted aPHR exam bundle.
