Welcome to the SHRMStore!

California Certification Preparation

PHR, SPHR, GPHRs, HRBPs and HRMPs may earn up to 12 recertification hours when attending this program for professional development.

Program Overview
Our PHR-CA/SPHR-CA preparation seminars are designed to maximize your learning as you prepare for the PHR-CA or SPHR-CA certification exam. These seminars will provide comprehensive information on California employment laws, rules and regulations; their impact on California employers; and the policies and practices necessary to ensure compliance.

The California certification preparation seminars should not be considered your only preparation, but rather an important step in focusing your study to maximize results. With group and instructor interaction, along with the SHRM California Learning System™, you can be confident preparing for the California exam.

Benefits & Features
The SHRM California Learning System™ is an excellent certification preparation and professional development tool that allows you to:

  • Review California-specific content based on the functional areas defined by the PHR-CA or SPHR-CA exam.
  • Enhance your exam preparation with practical examples and leading principles.
  • Hone your test-taking skills and validate your learning with sample exam questions.
  • The virtual seminar delivery option allows real time Q&A chats between participants, providing a dynamic virtual classroom experience. And all classes are recorded in their entirety so you can view at your own convenience.
