Needed! Certification Preparation:
The Mobile SHRM Chapter plans to
continue offering PHR and SPHR certification preparation courses
in conjunction with MTI once per year. We’re trying to decide if
fall or winter is the best time to schedule the next session, so we need
input from you. If you are considering enrolling in the certification
preparation course, please contact Mary White (firstname.lastname@example.org)
regarding your preference. You don’t have to commit to attending
now; we’re just trying to get a sense of the preferences of those
who are interested.
It’s also important to be aware that
HRCI is changing the body of knowledge starting in January. A fall session would be
based on the current body of knowledge, while a January session will
be based on the revisions. Information about what will be different
is not yet available, but there are likely to be significant additions
to the content included within the scope of the exam. The current class
price is $835 including books. The material prices may go up in January,
so tuition for a winter session may have to be higher than a fall session.
that a fall session would begin in September and end at the beginning
of December, in time for candidates to sit for the exam in the December/January
testing window. A winter session would begin in January and run through
early May, ending in time for candidates to sit for the exam in the
May/June testing window.
Alabama Department of Rehabilitation Services, EEOC, OFCCP and the
ABLE Network are sponsoring a free lunch and learn focused on disability-related
