I’m all about providing resources and support for HR and workplace leaders and that includes HR certification. Your HR certification exam is hands down the hardest test you will ever take in your HR career. I’ve found with the right support and preparation, you can ace that exam with flying colors. At Workology, we provide SHRM and HRCI Certification Prep courses through our podcast sponsors, Upskill HR, and Ace The HR Exam. Both are designed to support HR leaders in different ways. 

Episode 332: Passing your HR Certification exam – What was your experience like?

In addition to these courses, I also work hard to provide our HR certification community with the support and resources they need. I do this by creating a safe space and community for HR leaders to connect, share, and collaborate in our HR Certification Study Group on Facebook.

In today’s episode, I want to share with you excerpts from interviews with previous HR Certification test takers on their experience on taking and passing their HR Certification exam and some advice for you on how you can succeed.

This episode features (in order):

Patrice McFarquhar – SHRM-CP, Ace the HR Exam student

Anna Calhoun – aPHR, Ace the HR Audio student 

Darlene Rasmussen – SHRM-CP

The full interviews are linked to each guest above.

For me, working towards your HR certification starts with not only setting the goal but creating a plan to work towards that goal. Depending on the exam you pick, the pass rate varies which is why I suggest creating at least a 12-week study plan that allows for 60 hours of study time and includes reviewing materials, using HR practice questions, and working with a study group to review the HR topics you are learning. The test is tough but the reward is great!
