Lorman Education Services gives you the training you need to keep your SPHR certification up-to-date.
The Senior Professional in Human Resources (SPHR) certification is one of the highest awarded by the HR Certification Institute (HRCI). Recognizing a mastery of the “the strategic and policy-making aspects of HR management,” SPHR is intended for professionals engaged in the big-picture planning and management of all aspects of HR. If you’re an experienced professional looking for new opportunities at the management level, SPHR can be the certification you need to take your career to the next stage.
Becoming SPHR Certified
In order to become SPHR certified, you must successfully complete a three-hour multiple choice exam covering topics such as business management and strategy, workforce planning and employment, human resource development and more. The SPHR exam is open to anyone who has either:
- A Master’s degree and at least four years of experience in a professional HR role
- A Bachelor’s degree and at least five years of experience in a professional HR role
- A high school diploma and at least seven years of experience in a professional HR role
Once you have been certified, you are required to either re-take the test every three years or to complete a minimum 60 professional development credits over the course of the certification period. Of these credits, 15 must be in a topic related to business management and strategy.
Meeting Your Recertification Requirements
Getting SPHR certified can open the door to new professional opportunities. The irony to this is that, as your responsibilities increase, you have less time to commit to the training you require to stay certified. To meet the needs of busy HR professionals, Lorman Education Services offers several convenient ways to earn SPHR credits online:
- Live webinars, led by experienced management professionals and accessible from any computer or mobile device
- Self-study training that can be downloaded or streamed at your convenience. Self-study SPHR courses include archived webinars, slide shows, manuals and more.
