Fall Study Group Offering

    August 11, 2014

    A study group is being offered for anyone interested in obtaining their PHR or SPHR certification. The study group focuses on improving general knowledge of Human Resources and prepares individuals for the PHR or SPHR certification exam. Classes will be hosted at
    R. H. Sheppard Co. at 101 Philadelphia St. in Hanover, PA. Classes will start on Wednesday, September 10, 2014, and run for 12 weeks, meeting every Wednesday from 4:30pm – 7:30pm.

    There is no charge for participation in the Study Group; however, the purchase of the SHRM Learning System is required. The System is aligned with the HRCI Body of Knowledge that is used for the PHR or SPHR certification exam. If you need a copy of the SHRM Learning System, please contact Cheryl Cucco at or at (717) 633-4134 to purchase your System with the Chapter discount price of $495 plus shipping. Please know that the license term to access the web tools and testing materials for each System purchased is now 12 months (basically covers two testing periods). You will need to pre-pay with a check made payable to the Hanover Area Human Resource Association. The regular price of the 2014 SHRM Learning System (without the Chapter discount) is $695 for SHRM members and $860 for non-members.

    Deadline for registration in the Fall Study Group session is Wednesday, August 27, 2014.
