Can I get ALL of the credits I need to completely recertify my PHR or SPHR using this package?

HRCI requires 60 recertification credits (hours) every 3 years.  PHRs may take any course approved for HRCI credit.  SPHRs must accrue at least 15 hours of Business/Strategic credit as part of their 60 credits.  You can obtain ALL of your 60 credits using this package.  GPHRs will need to supplement the package with additional Global/International credits to total 15.  Those with California designations will need to supplement the package with California credits to total 15.


There is NO LIMIT on the number of e-Learning credits you may use toward your HRCI recertification.  The HRCI website states: "Calculating Credit for E-Learning/Online Courses:  You will earn one credit hour for every hour. There is no credit-hour limit because e-Learning activities are interactive and typically assess the user at the end of the online session."  All courses on this page are classified as e-Learning by HRCI. 


I am confused as to what is going on with SHRM/HRCI.  Can you clarify?

SHRM's new certifications has NO effect on current or future HRCI certifications and recertifications. If you decide to obtain the new SHRM certification, you will still need to recertify your current PHR/SPHR/GPHR/HRBP/HRMP as always if you wish to keep it.


Can I use this package for SHRM-CP or SHRM-SCP recertification also?

Yes.  Tools 2 Succeed is a SHRM Preferred Provider, and all courses on this page are also approved for SHRM PDCs.  Please note that these courses are considered to be "self-directed e-Learning" which is limited to 30 credits per 3-year cycle for the SHRM-CP or SHRM-SCP (but HRCI does not limit at all, so you can get all 60 credits for your PHR or SPHR certification with our e-Learning courses).  You can take the same courses for both HRCI and SHRM credit.  We also offer separate live, online, instructor-led courses at an additional cost to help you fulfill the SHRM-CP and SHRM-SCP requirements.  Click here for live, instructor-led courses.  Click here to verify our SHRM Preferred Provider status.


What do the courses look like?

Are hours and credits the same thing?

Yes!  1 hour of actual time is equal to 1 HRCI credit.


Can I take just a few courses and receive individual credit for them?

Yes.  Each indicated individual course is pre-approved for HRCI credit and SHRM PDCs.  Once you successfully complete a course, you will receive the pre-approved HRCI program ID number for that course which you will enter into your recertification application to receive the specified number of credits.  You may take the courses in any order and at any time during your 365-day subscription.


Can I access my courses from both home and work?

Yes.  You may access your courses from almost any PC or Mac, as well as iPads and most tablets.  You can start a course on one computer and then resume from where you left off on another.


Can I start a course and then go back to it again when I have time?

Yes.  You may start and stop courses as often as you like. 


Can I take the course test more than once?

Yes.  You may take the tests as many times as necessary.  You may also review the courses and lessons as many times as you wish during your 365-day subscription. 


How long will it take to earn my HRCI recertification credits?

Work at your own pace, anytime you wish during your 1-year subscription.  1 credit is equivalent to 1 hour of actual time.  If you need all 60 credits, you will need to spend approximately 60 hours of your time in the courses.


Do we need to purchase a separate subscription for each HRCI-certified professional?

Yes.  Each person must have a individual subscription because each HR professional must take his/her own courses and be able to provide individual certificates to HRCI in the event of an audit.  Subscriptions are licensed to individuals.


Do you offer discounts for multiple subscriptions?

Yes.  We offer an automatic 10% discount for 2-5 subscriptions purchased together or a 20% discount for 6 or more.  You may specify separate start dates for each user during checkout.  For group discounts using individual payments or for more than 10 subscriptions, please contact us.


How do I obtain HRCI recertification credit for my PHR, SPHR, GPHR, PHRca, PHRi or SPHRi?

Each online e-Learning course includes a test.  A passing score for HRCI recertification credit is 70%.  Correct answers are shown after answering each question.  If you do not pass the test on the first attempt, you can repeat the tests (as well as the lessons) as many times as necessary.


Once you have successfully completed a course, you will immediately be able to save or print a Certificate which contains the pre-approved HRCI and SHRM Activity ID Numbers.  You will enter the Activity Numbers into your HRCI and/or SHRM recertification application.  We also suggest that you upload your certificate into your HRCI recerifcation application.  We will be happy to help you with this process. There is NO additional charge to obtain HRCI or SHRM recertification credit.  EVERYTHING shown on this page is included in the purchase price. 


Can I save or print certificates at a later date?

Yes. You can save or print certificates at any time after you have successfully completed a course, up until the time your subscription expires.  You can save or print certificates from any computer.  We encourage you to save the certificates to a folder on your computer, then enter the course information into your HRCI and/or SHRM recertification applications and upload your certificate into your HRCI recertification application as you complete the courses.


Can I purchase today but have my subscription start at a later date? 

Yes.  Just enter your desired start date on page 2 of the shopping cart during checkout.  All subscriptions are valid for 1 year, with day 1 being your start date (February 1, 2017 to January 30, 2017). 


My certification expires in just a few weeks.  Is it realistic for me to obtain 60 hours of credit?

Yes, but please plan to spend 60 hours on the courses and get started IMMEDIATELY!


Are credits and hours the same thing?

Yes.  The 60 credits needed for HRCI recertification are equivalent to 60 hours of actual time.


Will the courses work on an iPad or android tablet?

Yes!  Courses now work on iPads and most tablets.  The only requirement is to disable the popup blocker.  On an iPad, you must use the Safari browser only.  Instructions are provided when you login to the e-Learning system, or feel free to call or write to us, and we'll be happy to help.


Are the courses available in an "accessible" mode?

Yes.  Text-only versions of the courses, designed for use with a screen-reading program, are an option for visually-impaired users.


Can I purchase another subscription at a discount after 1 year?

Yes. Once you have purchased our HRCI recertification credit package, you can subscribe for an additional 1 year at any time in the future for just $199.  Returning clients that have subscribed already to the 60+ credits package on this page will be given access to our HRCI recertification renewal package - including courses in this package PLUS an additional 60+ credits for a total of 150+ credits.  HRCI rules state that you may NOT repeat courses for credit that were used for credit in a previous recertification cycle, so you will have plenty of courses to choose from when you renew.  If you have had a subscription with us at ANY time in the past and wish to subscribe again, please follow the instructions sent to you by email or contact us if you need the information resent to you. 


What is the money-back guarantee?

Get what you pay for or your money back.  Click the Norton™ Shopping Guarantee seal in the bottom left corner for details.


Can I use these courses to obtain my PHR or SPHR?

No.  These courses are not intended for initial certification.  Although the content is valuable for any employee in general and may help you with the exam, the courses do not cover all of the exam content.  They will provide you with recertification credit once you already have your PHR, SPHR, or GPHR.  For our online low-cost certification preparation courses, please visit http://tools2succeed.com/hrcicertification.  For information on obtaining HRCI certification, please visit the HRCI website at www.hrci.org .  Once you pass your exam, we'll be happy to help you keep your certification too!
