                  Description

                  Over the past ten (10) years, the number of job opportunities and positions open for HR Professionals has exponentially exploded with the requirement or preference for Human Resource Certification. CalHRSuccess prepares HR professionals to take either the Professional in Human Resources California (PHRca®) from HRCI® or the Professional in Human Resources (PHR®) or the Senior Professional in Human Resources (SPHR®) and the Associate Professional in Human Resources(aPHR®) exams from HRCI®. The the PHR® and SPHR® courses are the same for both levels.*

                  CalHRSuccess will also offer appropriate additional support for recertification, study materials and other HR Certifications in the future to support your continuing development needs.

                  Holding the PHR®/SPHR®, California PHRca® or aPHR® from HRCI® is an important step to demonstrate HR competence in the State of California or in other parts of the United States.   Having the California designation helps employers, leaders, customers, clients, co-workers, other HR professionals and peers understand your level of influence, credibility, significance, competence, and devotion in the complex California landscape of employment and workforce management.

                  Your fee Includes participation in the course, access to our facilitator, a copy of our class handouts and a code for 20% off the retail price when you order your copy of the 2015 HR Quick Guide for California Employers® published by the California Chamber of Commerce®.

If you are an "out of state" Human Resources professional or office/administration manager with responsibilities for HR in California, these courses are an excellent opportunity to gain an understanding of The federal HR expertise and knowledge or the California-specific human resource knowledge.

                  • Professional in Human Resources California (PHRca®)

                  Understand California HR

                  Our mission is to promote the development of HR professionals supporting California employees.

                  Our History

                  We, the founders of CalHRSuccess, are passionate about the success of the HR profession and the ability of HR professionals to have a positive impact on the organizations they support. We are experienced facilitators/instructors with over 45 years of combined experience and participation in the creation of the Cal HR Body of Knowledge/Content Outline. As a result of recent developments in the human resource market place between HRCI® and SHRM, there is a void in the offerings of courses designed to assist HR Professionals in the preparation for the existing HRCI® examination.  We want to fill that immediate gap in the market place by offering exam preparation material and courses to assist human resource professionals with these exams.  SHRM now has its own certifications, but is not currently addressing the California-specific exam.  We hope to be part of that and other opportunities to meet developmental and learning needs of HR professionals supporting California employees.
