Capella offers online prep courses to prepare you for success in
your Human Resource Certification Institute (HRCI) and SHRM exams.*
These Capella certification exam preparation courses are designed by
subject matter experts, and include discussion questions, application
exercises, and module exams to develop specific HR competencies.
*While pass rates on the aPHR®/PHR®/SPHR® and SHRM®- CP/SCP exam tend
to improve for those taking the review course, no guarantee can be
made that completion of this course will result in success on this
exam. Individuals are encouraged to use this review course as a guide
in their preparation and to seek additional assistance as they
determine is necessary.
Each unit consists of readings, discussions, and other activities
you will be expected to complete throughout the week. Assignments are
due on Sundays, though not every course requires an assignment each
In each course, you will receive a detailed scoring guide that describes expectations for every graded assignment.
Grades are based on your participation in weekly reading discussions and completion of assignments. You will also be assessed on your ability to demonstrate an understanding of expected outcomes for your program or specialization. These outcomes are based on the needs and performance standards of your field or discipline.

If you’re highly motivated, looking to save time and money, and crave the freedom and flexibility of setting your own pace, you may want to consider FlexPath. Rather than face weekly deadlines, you’ll work at your own pace to complete a series of assessments for each course.
There’s no limit to the number of courses you can complete per session — you’ll still pay the same flat tuition rate every 12 weeks.
Whether you're completing additional credits for your own education, want to see if online learning is right for you, or are simply interested in a specific topic, you can enroll in many of Capella's online courses without committing to a degree program. We recommend speaking with an enrollment counselor to discuss your goals and ensure that the credits you earn now may be applicable to a Capella degree program.
