Lorman Education Services gives you the training you need to keep your PHRca certification up-to-date.
HR professionals working in California have to deal with a unique set of state regulations that make their jobs different from anyone else’s in the country. Because of this, the HR Certification Institute (HRCI) has created the Professional in Human Resources – California (PHRca) certification, a unique program that addresses the specifics of CA’s HR laws.
Becoming PHRca Certified
PHRca certification is earned by completing a multiple choice exam covering the following topics:
- State-specific compensation/wage and hours laws
- Employment law and employee relations
- Benefits and leaves of absence
- Health, safety and workers’ compensation
Once you have passed the exam, your certification is valid for three years. In order to recertify, you are required to either take the test again or to complete 60 credits of approved professional development activities, of which 15 must be specific to California’s HR laws and regulations.
