PHRca PreConference Course


Kick off your HR West conference with a PHRca® Prep course!

Add this California Certification  to your HR career portfolio with the Professional in Human Resources – California® (PHRca®) from HR Certification Institute® (HRCI®). The PHRca demonstrates your mastery of the laws, regulations and HR management practices unique to the state of California. The PHRca is for professionals who either practice in California or are responsible for human resource management in California.

You do not have to be based in California to earn a PHRca and you do not need to have any other certifications to qualify to take the PHRca. Many certification holders add the PHRca to their other HRCI credentials. Upon completion of this course, you will be prepared to sit for the PHRca exam during the convenient open testing window at locations across the country.
