HR UPFRONT, LLC is a Certification Preparation Provider (CPP) listed with Human Resource Certification Institute (HRCI). I have assembled the critical core components of a successful online HR certification preparation course: a competent instructor who is a veteran practitioner in the field, excellent materials and resources, and proven learning experiences. These components provide the best preparation for the SPHR/PHR certification exam.

The instructor has extensive experience creating and teaching successful human resource certification preparation courses and developed a human resource certification preparation course at an institution of higher learning. His programs produced a 92% pass rate on the PHR and 80% pass rate on the SPHR over a five year period (2002-2007) compared to a national pass rate of 66% on the PHR and 58% on the SPHR over the same five year time period. In 2017 HRCI reported the average national pass rate for the PHR at 55% and 57% for the SPHR. There has clearly been a downward trend in the pass rates for the PHR and SPHR over the last nine years. While there is no one best method to prepare for the certification exam, HR UPFRONT has created its own unique and updated preparation design online available 24/7 which it feels will best prepare human resource professionals for the SPHR/PHR certification exam.

HR UPFRONT, LLC pass rates: PHR 99% and SPHR 88% since inception in 2008.
