Certification Test Prep Course FAQs




"The HR Certification Review course offered by Dallas HR was an excellent pathway for me to obtain my PHR certification. The instructors for the course are subject matter experts in the field of HR and it was very helpful to meet different professionals across the industry as they shared their knowledge with the class. This course also encourages the formation of study groups to meet outside of class time to review the large volume of information. I met an excellent study partner, we kept each other accountable and met weekly to review what was discussed by our instructor along with the information from the HRCI Human Resource Body of Knowledge book.  If you are looking for a review class that gives you the tools to be successful, that is a productive use of your time – this is the class for you!"
