The SHRM® Online Learning System Course
This professional development, online program is designed for two audiences:
- Participants seeking continuing professional development and a broad overview of the field
- Participants preparing to take the Professional in Human Resources (PHR) or Senior Professional in Human Resources (SPHR) certification examinations administered by the HR Certification Institute.
This course is offered in partnership with the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM). The course investment includes all course materials, but does not cover registration for the PHR or SPHR examinations.
When deciding to attain my PHR Certification, I had decided to utilize a prep course and found that the online class through Anna Maria College would best suit my scheduling needs. I felt that I needed the structure of a class to help me keep my course of study on track. Since completing the course, I recently passed the test to receive my PHR Certification. It definitely helped me to attain my goal and will help other HR Professionals to do the same! Good luck! Testimonial from a Student from the spring 2011 class
