Why take HRAM’s Prep Course?

Besides being affordable, personal attention sets our prep course apart. We’re here to guide you through the preparation process and to celebrate your certification with you.

Study materials come from a study guide prepared especially for HRAM and are copyrighted by HRAM and edited and approved by Ray Weinberg, SPHR, CCP. Our instructors are selected for their expertise on the subject matter that they will be presenting. They are available to students to answer additional questions during the course and many provide additional study materials beyond those included with your course fees. Many of the instructors are certified and can empathize with you as you prepare for your certification.

Students are prepped with a pre-test on the first and last nights of class to assess each individual’s readiness so that you can plan your study emphasis. Study groups are also formed to help boost students’ performance on the exam.
