This course is designed for the HR professional that is qualified to sit for the SPHR certification exam. The course requires 100% attendance. There is a mandatory one-hour orientation where the SHRM Learning Materials are issued. There are four days of intense classroom study and review that concentrates on the sections of the SHRM Learning Materials that emphasize the SPHR. The course will also cover the Body of Knowledge that will be included on the SPHR certification exam.
Students will have to be thoroughly prepared before class. Students are required to read the entire set of SHRM Learning Materials between orientation and the first day of class. In class we will discuss SPHR related subjects in depth using the SHRM Learning Materials and scenarios. Discussion and class interaction will be a major part of the learning process.
A KSU certificate is earned by students with a 70% or greater average on the six post tests. A SHRM certificate is earned by students with a 70% or greater on the final. Both certificates require 100% attendance.
