Coming soon.. Please contact customer care for new schedule

Course Description:

This intensive review program was designed to provide Human Resources professionals all the relevant information in order to be fully prepared for the PHR or SPHR Certification Exam. The Professional in Human Resources (PHR) Certification demonstrates mastery of the technical and operational aspects of HR practices and U.S Laws and regulations. The Senior Professional in Human Resources (SPHR) certification is recognized as a professionally relevant credential for those who have mastered the strategic and policy-making aspects of HR management in the United States. In today’s competitive business world, there are numerous reasons why a Human Resources Certification matters. Many people are eager to start a career in Human Resources, as it is a fast-growing career field with many lucrative opportunities. For starters, one out of every two hiring managers prefer candidates with certification. In addition, the U.S Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) projected the demand of human resources professionals to continue growing by an average of 15% through 2025. HR professionals who hold the PHR or SPHR tend to make more money than their peers who do not. Career analysts expect the number of Human Resources jobs to increase in the future and the median annual income for careers in Human Resources is above the national average.

Why Should You Attend:

Now more than ever, organizations who hire Human Resource Professionals are requiring human resource management job applicants to be certified. To stay ahead in the field, it is necessary for Human Resource Management Professionals to update their skills, add to their existing knowledge base, and remain on top of current trends within the industry. Holding a PHR or SPHR provides a powerful boost to career momentum. With either certification, HR professionals are more likely to advance to more senior roles. By obtaining your PHR or SPHR credentials you show that you are committed to being the best you can be in your profession.

Local Attractions of San Diego, CA:

San Diego Cabrillo National Monument
The first European to set foot in California was the Spanish explorer Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo, who stepped on shore near this spot in in 1542. He's the guy they made this statue to look like - and named the park after. We don't know if Cabrillo climbed all the way up to the top of this promontory or not, but people who make up here nowadays get some of the best views of San Diego, looking across the Bay and back toward downtown.

Sea Creatures at Birch Aquarium
Birch Aquarium is north of San Diego in La Jolla. It's not as big as some of the other aquariums in California or as flashy as the big sea-themed park down the road, but instead just right, filled with interesting exhibits and home to leafy sea dragons like the one above, creatures so improbably they look more like something from a children's book than from the ocean.

Legoland theme park takes its inspiration from Lego toys, those cute little bricks that snap together to build all kinds of fun things. It's one of several Legolands worldwide.

San Diego Zoo Safari Park
The San Diego Zoo's sister park offers a different kind of animal experience. Its name (Safari Park) is the clue and it indeed offers a more safari-like experience. Lots of large animals live in the same big, open areas here - predators kept away from prey, but otherwise much as they would in their natural habitat.

Coronado Island
Coronado isn't really an island but a peninsula - a fact that doesn't get in the way of the name most people use for it. Whatever you call it, it's on a slender strip of land between the San Diego Bay and the Pacific Ocean, barely a few blocks wide. What it lacks in size it makes up for in fun, with a beach that's been named among the best in the country, a classic hotel and a compact, lively little downtown. Coronado's laid-back temperament makes a nice break from the busier parts of San Diego across the water.

Balboa Park
Originally built for temporary use during the 1915-16 Panama-California Exposition in San Diego, Balboa Park boasts buildings beautiful enough to be considered attractions in themselves, especially if you're a photographer. They're surrounded by trees, lawns and fountains, but that's only the beginning.
