HRCI SPHR, GPHR, and PHR Certification


The HR Certification Institute (HRCI) provides Human Resources professionals with PHR, GPHR, and SPHR certifications, demonstrating that they have mastered the HR body of knowledge.

PHR, GPHR, and SPHR Certificate Preparation

If you are studying in order to prepare for the HRCI PHR, GPHR, or SPHR exam, ERI Distance Learning Center (DLC) courses provide a useful online HR resource for many of the HR exam questions. Distance Learning Center courses provide thorough training in compensation planning and benefits administration, including global compensation. Distance Learning Center online courses have varying completion times; the range is 1-2 hours. They can be taken anywhere, anytime you have access to a computer with Internet connection.

HRCI PHR, GPHR, and SPHR Recertification

Once you have passed an HRCI PHR, GPHR, or SPHR exam and received your PHR, GPHR, or SPHR certificate, you will need to stay up to date on developments in HR practices. To prove you have maintained and updated your HR knowledge, HRCI requires that you recertify every 3 years.

You can do so by:

  1. Taking a PHR, GPHR, or SPHR recertification exam administered by HRCI.


  2. Earning 60 PHR, GPHR, and SPHR recertification credits through continuing education courses approved by HRCI; teaching an HR subject in a presentation; conducting research on an HR topic or publishing in the HR field; providing leadership to a committee, board, or conference; or maintaining membership in a national professional society.

The ERI Distance Learning Center is an HRCI-approved provider. You can earn your PHR, GPHR, and SPHR recertification credit hours by taking ERI Distance Learning Center courses. We offer 36 courses and all are approved by HRCI for 1-2 credit hours of PHR, GPHR, and SPHR recertification credit. In addition to courses approved for HR credit, DLC also offers courses approved for Global credit.
