Are you trying to get ahead in HR?
Holding an HR certification will give you a powerful boost in your career momentum. HR professionals holding PHR, SPHR, SHRM-CP and SHRM-SCP certifications are more likely to advance to strategic leadership roles in their (or a new!) organization.
Want to show your boss you know what you're doing?
Having your certification, whether PHR, SHRM-CP, SPHR or SHRM-SCP, gives you that upper hand. Finding ways to set yourself apart from your colleagues can be a constant challenge for most HR professionals. Certification affirms that you know your HR stuff - and that you are committed to the profession.
Would you like to increase your current salary?
HR professionals who hold certification tend to make more money than their peers who do not. This difference becomes significantly more the more senior the position.

Our Course Gets Real Results
Stacey Dotson, PHR
Thanks to your app, your class, and the new textbook (great book by the way!), I felt confident going into the exam. The nerves really are the hardest part to push through. I am so grateful to you for all your support and for continuously pushing me to get this completed.
Hope Sims, SHRM-CP
Lori, your instructions and lectures on all of your training modules is outstanding and remarkable. I love what you have done. You have described everything in such a thorough and organized manner. I also love the the HR cards because it helps me to understand what I’ve been doing all along but didn’t know the correct terminology for it.
Chuk Chukudebelu, SHRM-SCP
