The content of our Learning Resources is structured around the Competency Framework (CF). The CF is action oriented and describes the standard requirements for practicing HR professionals.

The HR Knowledge Exams (Ontario Knowledge Exam 1, Ontario Knowledge Exam 2 and National Knowledge Exam) test Competencies, as described in the Competency Framework. Therefore, even if you were successful in an academic HR program, you should not rely solely on your text books as study resources. Those that use a variety of study tools will have a higher degree of success!

Sample Multiple Choice Questions

There are over 500 sample questions in our Study Guide packages. Please be aware that they are not duplicates of actual exam questions. They are of equal difficulty (some say harder) then actual questions, and they have been developed by both academics and practitioners.

ALL actual test items are held in strict security and are not shared with ANY vendor of exam prep products – not even those offered by HR Associations. These items are the property of the examination bodies, and are retained and banked for use on future exams. Therefore, our products, and ANY other exam prep product, CANNOT specifically “teach to the test.” Why have PROFESSIONAL exams if you know what is going to be on them – that would test your memory, NOT your professional knowledge.

We have helped thousands of individuals like you prepare for certification and improve their careers and salaries. Order your Study Guide now or place your order by phone. Toll-free: 1.866.607.0876.
