PHR/SPHR Study Group

What are you doing to advance your career and professional development? Get Certified. Get Noticed.

NAAAHR Atlanta is pleased to announce that we will offer another opportunity for HR professionals to achieve their goal of becoming certified as either a PHR or SPHR through the HR Certification Institute. SHRM announced last year that the organization will offer a new certification exam. We encourage all to seek out additional professional development. At this time NAAAHR Atlanta is offering a study group for those who are looking to obtain the PHR or SPHR Certification. NAAAHR Atlanta continues to support our members and supporters as they look to enhance their HR knowledge.

Our commitment to our members and supporters is that we will continue to offer dynamic programs—where a majority of our Chapter Meetings are HRCI approved so that those who are already certified can earn recertification credits. At some point in the near future, NAAAHR Atlanta will evaluate whether our programming will offer both PHR/SPHR and/or SHRM-CP/SHRM-SCP Recertification credits. Until then we will continue to offer HRCI approved programs as well as support those who are ready to get certified!

Are you ready to take the next step in your HR career? Stay tuned for the next NAAAHR Atlanta PHR/SPHR study group.
