Ever wish you could remove the catch 22 of “How do my employees get enough experience to become certified in HR?”  Fortunately, the Human Resource Certification Institute (HRCI) has come up with a great way to cut through the typical “years of experience” barrier  found  in most HR certification criteria.  Companies benefit when their HR workforce has certifications that help them:

  • Minimize exposure to corporate risk
  • Develop talent recruitment & retention strategies
  • Create a strong, positive company culture

Francis Tuttle Technology Center’s Business and Industry Services is pleased to offer the HRCI Associate Professional in Human Resources Certification (aPHR) Exam Prep.  Earning an aPHR Certification demonstrates a foundational knowledge of human resource operations as practiced in the U.S. This knowledge based test prep course is designed for individuals who are just embarking on an HR career but have minimal to no college education and HR work experience.   It is also ideal for current employees who already have some HR responsibilities but do not have an HR certification.  Students must have a high school diploma or equivalent and be a US resident.
