When companies are looking to hire someone for an HR position, they are looking at experience, education, HR certification and fit. Surprisingly, less than 15% of HR professional are certified and with that being said, certification is one way to set yourself apart from the crowd.
Additionally, not everyone who takes a certification exam passes, in fact the pass rate is between 50%-70%. However, the fact that someone is taking the time to ensure that they are up on the HR body of knowledge is a professional step in the right direction.

2018/19 class had a 92% pass rate!
“I thoroughly enjoyed his class. Having over 8 years of experience in HR but learning from on-the-job this class provided me with a lot of the technical names, laws and language of HR. The way he presented with personnel stories and examples provided me with real examples and not just reading form a book. It also prepared me I believe and will soon find out for the PHR test. I was surprised that he encouraged the entire class to connect with him on LinkedIn and email him with questions as we prepared for the PHR test. In any event I don’t normally write about professors or trainers but I was impressed with him.”
“I took the aPHR exam last Friday, May 11th and I think you’ll be happy to hear that you can add me onto your 95% pass rating! Along with that I got a volunteer HR coordinator internship through the mentor that you provided! Thank you for everything you’ve done to help get me where I needed to be for post graduation and everything you do for UC students. p.s. you are the raddest professor ever!”
