Certification as a Human Resources professional is becoming an integral step to building a successful career. Brandman prepares HR professionals to take either the Professional in Human Resources (PHR) or the Senior Professional in Human Resources (SPHR) exam from HRCI. We also offer the new SHRM Certified Professional (SHRM-CP) and SHRM Senior Certified Professional (SHRM-SCP) exam prep courses.
Holding an HR certification demonstrates relevance, competence, experience, dedication and credibility to your employers, clients, staff members and professional peers. Certified HR professionals tend to advance to senior roles more quickly. 63 percent of HR assistants with certification received a promotion within five years, compared to only 34 percent of those without certification.*
Who should take this course?
Our Human Resource certification preparation courses are designed primarily for individuals seeking professional certifications. These courses are also good overviews for all entry level and more senior staff in human resources who need professional development or certification focused on the topic areas that comprise the focus of their daily work.
