HRCI’s Associate Professional in Human Resources (aPHR) is the perfect certification to help fast-track your career growth and provide you with the confidence to launch into the HR profession. The aPHR certification is the first-ever HR certification designed for professionals who are just beginning their HR career or seeking to enter the HR field. Jumpstart your knowledge and confidence and become proficient in HR operations, employment law, recruitment, compensation, benefits, HR development, employee and labor relations, and safety, health and security.

This course is an intensive review of the essentials of human resource management and serves as thorough preparation for those pursuing their aPHR certification as well as a standalone course for non-HR professionals. The course incorporates study tips, test-taking strategies, practice questions, in-class exercises and discussions, and exam-specific final assessments developed exclusively by HR Cert Prep Pros to supplement your HRCP study materials.
