Our PHR-CA®/SPHR-CA® certifications are designed for HR professionals who currently hold PHR® and SPHR® credentials and are experts in regulations and legal mandates specific to the state of California. The exam focuses on California HR-related laws and practices and does not test knowledge already covered on the PHR or SPHR exam. HR professionals who earn a PHR-CA or SPHR-CA have proven that they have mastered the unique skills necessary to practice in the state of California.
The California certification exam is divided into four functional areas:
- Compensation and Benefits (26%)
- Employee and Labor Relations (46%)
- Leaves of Absence and Workers’ Compensation (17%)
- Health, Safety and Security (11%)
