Course Description:

This intensive review program was designed to provide Human Resources professionals all the relevant information in order to be fully prepared for the PHR or SPHR Certification Exam. The Professional in Human Resources (PHR) Certification demonstrates mastery of the technical and operational aspects of HR practices and U.S Laws and regulations. The Senior Professional in Human Resources (SPHR) certification is recognized as a professionally relevant credential for those who have mastered the strategic and policy-making aspects of HR management in the United States. In today’s competitive business world, there are numerous reasons why a Human Resources Certification matters. Many people are eager to start a career in Human Resources, as it is a fast-growing career field with many lucrative opportunities. For starters, one out of every two hiring managers prefer candidates with certification. In addition, the U.S Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) projected the demand of human resources professionals to continue growing by an average of 15% through 2025. HR professionals who hold the PHR or SPHR tend to make more money than their peers who do not. Career analysts expect the number of Human Resources jobs to increase in the future and the median annual income for careers in Human Resources is above the national average.

Why Should You Attend:

Now more than ever, organizations who hire Human Resource Professionals are requiring human resource management job applicants to be certified. To stay ahead in the field, it is necessary for Human Resource Management Professionals to update their skills, add to their existing knowledge base, and remain on top of current trends within the industry. Holding a PHR or SPHR provides a powerful boost to career momentum. With either certification, HR professionals are more likely to advance to more senior roles. By obtaining your PHR or SPHR credentials you show that you are committed to being the best you can be in your profession.

Local Attractions

Falls Park on the Reedy is a 32-acre park adjacent to downtown Greenville, South Carolina in the historic West End district. Considered the birthplace of Greenville, the park was founded in 1967 when the Carolina Foothills Garden Club reclaimed 26 acres of land that had been previously used by textile mills. Renovation accelerated in the late 1990s under Mayor Knox H. White, prompting the formation of the Falls Park Endowment, a private charity supporting ongoing development. Each summer the park is home to the Upstate Shakespeare Festival. The park's most striking feature is a unique pedestrian bridge that curves around a waterfall on the Reedy River. Named the Liberty Bridge at Falls Park on the Reedy, the 355-foot long suspension bridge is supported by cables on only one side, giving an unobstructed view of the falls.

The art collections in Greenville County Museum of Art (GCMA) focus mainly on American art. Its holdings include works by Andrew Wyeth, Josef Albers, Jasper Johns, Andy Warhol, Romare Bearden, Jacob Lawrence, Ronnie Landfield, Helen Turner, Mary Tannahill, Eric Fischl, Marylyn Dintenfass, and Leon Golub. Southern American and South Carolina-based artists, such as Henrietta Johnston, are also represented. William Melton Halsey, an abstract painter from Charleston, had a mid-career retrospective at the museum in 1972 with an accompanying catalog by Jack A. Morris Jr. In 1999 Tom Styron, director, curated another solo exhibition of Halsey's work.

The Greenville Zoo opened in 1960, and is located at 150 Cleveland Park Drive, near Interstate 385, on a 14-acre (5.7 ha) site within Cleveland Park. The zoo's official website states: "A typical visit would last from an hour to an hour and 30 minutes." The zoo is next to Cleveland Park, which contains picnic tables throughout the site, and offers bicycle and walking paths, tennis and volleyball courts, playgrounds for children, and several shelters available by reservation. The zoo is open daily throughout the year except for Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year's Day.

Lake Conestee Nature Park is a 400-acre park along three miles of the Reedy River in Conestee, South Carolina, with more than two miles of paved and three miles of natural surface trails. The park contains both hardwood and evergreen forest, extensive wetlands, and a rich diversity of reptiles, mammals, and birds. Over 190 bird species have been reported by the Greenville County Bird Club, and the National Audubon Society has designated the park as an Important Bird Area of Global Significance. Lake Conestee was created when the Reedy River was dammed at the Conestee Mill in about 1892. At its largest, the lake covered about 130 acres.
