HRCI & SHRM Approved Webinars

Becoming an expert and trusted leader in your field is something all professionals strive for. In the Human Resources field, there are a handful of certifications to choose from, including PHR, SPHR, aPHR, PHRca, GPHR, PHRi, or SPHRi. In addition to the HR certifications provided by HRCI, SHRM provides two options - SHRM-CP and SHRM-SCP. The type of certification you pursue will depend on education, experience, location, and each requires an application and passed exam.

In order to maintain HR certification, professionals must complete a certain number of continuing education credit hours, both instructor and self-led. Webinars are a great avenue to obtain your self-led continuing education activities! We offer HR webinars that address everyday issues that Human Resources professionals face, provide strategy on how to fix hiring processes, and share tips on how to attract the best candidates for your open jobs. Each of our free webinars are pre-approved with HRCI & SHRM for at least one hour of HR professional development credit, so you're not only learning, but walking away one credit closer to re-certification!
