Georgia Southern University

Course provides preparation for professional HR exam

The Continuing Education Center at Georgia Southern University will sponsor a 36-hour intensive course that will prepare participants who are seeking certification as a Professional in Human Resources (PHR) or Senior Professional in Human Resources (SPHR).

The ‘Certificate in Professional Human Resource Management” program will run on 12 consecutive Monday evenings from Feb. 4 through April 21. Each session will meet from 6 p.m. until 9 p.m. at the Coastal Georgia Center in Savannah.

The course is offered in cooperation with the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) as study material for the PHR and SPHR certification exams. These exams are administered twice annually by the Human Resources Certification Institute (HRCI).

The SHRM Learning System course materials correspond to the six functional areas, responsibilities and associated knowledge defined by the HRCI as the Human Resources Body of Knowledge. The SHRM Leaning System is included in the course fee.

Participants may take the course even if they do not plan to take the PHR or SPHR exam. All participants must attend a one-hour orientation session, which will be offered on two dates prior to the start of the course.

The fee for the course is $905 per person for SHRM members and $955 per person for non-members. The fee for all participants will increase to $980 per person after 5 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 25. The registration deadline is 7 p.m. on Monday, Jan. 28.
