    Enhance your experience and expertise!

    Are you ready to earn your HR certification?

    If you’re planning to take the SHRM Certified Professional (SHRM-CP™) or SHRM Senior Certified Professional (SHRM-SCP™) certification exam, AHRMA’s fourteen-week course will prepare you with the information you need to pass the exam. Through expert instruction and peer discussion with other HR professionals from around the Austin area, you will gain valuable knowledge that will prepare you for your exam. The program curriculum is designed by global subject matter experts and covers the entire SHRM Body of Competency and Knowledge™ (SHRM BoCK™).

    For SHRM exam requirements and dates, visit www.SHRMcertification.org.

    Who Should Sign Up: 

    • Current and aspiring HR practitioners who want to increase their knowledge base
    • Small business owners or office managers who perform the HR function for their company
    • Business managers who want to learn basic HR best practices to enhance their employee experience

    Why Take the AHRMA Study Group:

    • These days you can’t browse through HR job postings without seeing the inevitable “Certification Required”. Most mid to senior-level HR job postings request a preference for candidates with an HR certification.
    • According to a survey done by Payscale, senior HR professionals who are certified make up to 20K more than their non-certified counterparts.
    • Join 96,000 SHRM certified professionals, the fastest-growing HR certification community. The SHRM-CP and SHRM-SCP are the most widely-taken HR exams in the world.
    • Taking the AHRMA Certification Study Group:
      • Keeps you accountable for learning the material
      • Gives you access to experienced instructors who know the content and the exam structure, and can help you prepare. Each class is taught by an instructor from the local Austin HR Community.  
      • Allows you to learn from and build relationships with other local HR professionals, who are all committed to showing up each week, supporting each other, and sharing their own expertise in class.

    *SHRM requires specific educational and work experience in order to be eligible to sit for the SHRM-CP or SHRM-SCP exam. Learn more on the SHRM website.

    Employment Law Hot Topic

    Responding to Employee Misconduct Away from the Workplace:

    What options do employers have when faced with employee behavior away from the workplace that potentially harms the company?  In this presentation we will provide practical tips for responding to and disciplining employees for off-the-clock conduct and use of social media that may damage the employer’s reputation, expose the company to potential liability, or violate internal policies and values. 

    Speaker Bio:

    Abraham F Barker, Eichelbaum Wardell Hansen Powell & Mehl, P.C., focuses his practice in defense of employment, personnel, labor law and special education matters. Formerly a partner in a national labor and employment law firm representing Fortune 500 companies in all manner of employee issues, Abraham now devotes his practice exclusively to Texas public school districts, with almost twenty years experience representing management on employee relations and discrimination issues. 

    A skilled investigator, Abraham has conducted numerous investigations into employee and student misconduct on behalf of school districts, as well as undertaking investigations related to Department of Labor wage allegations. Most recently, he has spent time conducting and training school administrators on the intricacies of Title IX investigations.
