To help our members prepare for exams, TSHRM offers a Certification Study Group for both the SHRM and HRCI Certification. This combo class meets for about 8 weeks before the exam period, once in the Spring and once in the Fall. We hold these sessions virtually (through the Zoom platform) to review material, take practice exams, and participate in discussions of the material and real-world applications. An outline of the typical agenda is below and subject to change based on class progress and needs.

Schedule:  Eight (8) weeks on Tuesday evenings:  October 1st - November 19th 

Location: VIRTUAL – Zoom meetings (no need to be a user ahead of time)

Required Material: TSHRM will be using Anne Bogardus’ PHR/SPHR: Professional in Human Resources Certification Study Guide (4th Edition) as our primary text.  Other recommended texts are: PHR Professional in Human Resources (2nd Edition) by Cathy Lee Gibson and SPHR Exam Prep; Senior Professional in Human Resources (2nd Edition) by Larry Phillips.  

While the books cover similar material, our groups’ discussions will be drawn from the Bogardus text.  All texts are priced at ~$40 individually at  Please have your textbook resources handy during study group sessions as slides and other information will be discussed in class.  MATERIALS ARE NOT PROVIDED BY TSHRM; You must purchase your own study materials and have them ready.  Each attendee must have an active Gmail email account to access course materials during our sessions.
