Learn the Knowledge and Skills Needed to Pass the PHR and SPHR Exam! This 9-hour course features a comprehensive, in-depth review focusing on the specific areas targeted by the PHR Examination. This weekly intensive review will feature practice exams and will explore valuable test-taking techniques and strategies.
PHR and SPHR Certification Information and Changes:
Candidates will benefit from this reduction in examination length, as the duration of the examination will drop to 3 hours, making the test-taking experience less taxing while still producing valid and reliable results.
The Institute follows certification-industry best practices, and decided to make this change following a careful investigation of the impact that this reduction in length would have on reliability and validity. The reliability and validity of an examination are indicators of its ability to produce consistent and accurate results. It was found that the shorter exams would retain high levels of reliability and validity.
The content of the examinations will not be altered and the percentage of test items across the six functional areas will remain the same. In addition, the number of exam items in each functional area will remain ample and will allow for the inclusion of a sufficiently wide mix of questions to ensure that breadth and depth of candidate knowledge is effectively sampled.
In summary, the reduction in length of the PHR and SPHR certification examinations is consistent with certification industry best-practice, as the shorter examinations place less of a burden on candidates while preserving high levels of reliability and validity.
