ABOUT HRwrx 2.0 - 2017 Edition Session 1

Welcome to HRPA's HRwrx exam prep for the Comprehensive Knowledge Exam for the Certified Human Resources Professional designation, otherwise known as the CKE1 exam. The prep program has been revised to comply with the new Professional Competency Framework. We call it HRwrx 2.0.


The program is organized into 8 parts:


·         A guide to how to study and prepare for multiple choice based exams

·         A knowledge directory based on the core competencies that explains the knowledge required to perform various aspects of the HR function

·         A pre-diagnostic exam that measures your knowledge for each of the nine core competencies to make it easy for you prioritize where to focus your prep time

·         Detailed reviews of each of the nine core competencies

·         Updated glossaries of HR terms for each of the nine competencies and includes complete glossary

·         Four timed, 3-hour, 150-question exam simulations you can re-take often as you like (each time you do, your previous score will be erased)

·         A discussion forum to share exam prep experiences with other HRwrx 2.0 subscribers

·         Two on-demand webinars, one with top scorers, and one with tips for taking multiple choice exams


Except for the exams—the pre-diagnostic, the timed simulations—and the webcasts, all materials have been packaged as PDFs to make it easy for you to study, whether online or offline.
