You embarked on this journey with one goal – passing your exam and earning that highly coveted HR credential. ConquerHR® will keep you on target and help you reach your goal!

About ConquerHR® Boot Camps

ConquerHR® Boot Camps are designed to be an intensive and rigorous review focusing on the specific areas targeted by HRCI’s PHR® and SPHR® as well as SHRM’s SHRM-CP® and SHRM-SCP® certification examinations. This course will give you the confidence and test-taking strategies to ensure you are as well prepared as possible. It is a combination of lecture, facilitated discussion, and exercises working through practice questions to contribute to exam readiness. This course features competency clarification, situational judgement questions, review of key terms, concepts, theories, and models, and will explore valuable test-taking techniques and strategies. You will be exhausted by end of class but walk away much better prepared to earn your pass!

This 8-hour Boot Camp is perfect for exam candidates who have extremely tight schedules, have studied on their own, gone through a prep class, taking the exam for a second time, or are otherwise familiar with the material and seek the added advantage of an intensive review that focuses on the must-know, most troublesome, and most known to present concepts on these exams.

Victoria continuously improves her ConquerHR® Boot Camps. She updates based on current trends in the application of the HRCI Capability Model™ and exam content outlines, as well as SHRM’s BASK™, Body of Applied Skills and Knowledge, and the specific needs of participants for each live class.

Is a ConquerHR® Boot Camp Right for you?

Attending a ConquerHR® Boot Camp is best for those who are at least mid-way through their self-studies or instructor-led program, and exam candidates should attend no later than 2 weeks prior to their scheduled exam date.

Measure results of your preparation efforts throughout your journey by tracking and looking for trends in your quizzes and practice exam scores. Victoria encourages you to take a practice exam from your main learning resources a day or two prior to attending a live ConquerHR® Boot Camp and a day or two after, applying what you learned and the CHR method for approaching knowledge and situational judgement test items.
