HRCI Certification

Certification is an essential tool for maintaining high professional standards and shows that you have demonstrated mastery of the domestic or international HR body of knowledge and, through recertification, have accepted the challenge to stay informed of new developments in the HR field.  The PHR, SPHR and GPHR designations are also a visible reminder to peers and co-workers of your significant professional achievement. The Human Resource Certification Institute (HRCI) is the human resource credentialing body founded by the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM).

RWHRMA promotes certification and recertification among its membership.  For individuals preparing to take the exam, the chapter offers certification study groups.  The chapter also awards 2 certification scholarships each year.  Certification scholarships are for members only.  To be eligible, you may not be reimbursed for the exam by any other source and must provide proof of passing the exam.

Why Certify

Certifying in the Human Resources field is not an easy task and you may be wondering if it worth the time and commitment it takes.  Certifying can provide an individual with more opportunities and growth in their career.  How many job ads do you see that says "PHR/SPHR preferred”? It provides a broad overview of the field that is helpful in understanding all areas of a business that HR can work in and affect.  Whatever your goal may be, certifying will set you apart from others and help you to be more confident in your career.

RWHRMA has been assisting individuals for over 10 years to study and understand what is required to certify.  Many of our students successfully pass the certification test the first time.   We offer classes twice a year and our next session begins in March.

Why Recertify?

Recertification demonstrates your continued dedication to stay up to date with the rapidly changing HR profession. To retain the PHR, SPHR or GPHR designations, HRCI requires all certificants to recertify every three years either by accumulating 60 educational hours through continuing education, instruction, on-the-job experience, research and publishing, leadership activities, or membership in a national or international professional organization such as the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM), or by retaking the examination (recertification by examination).  Raleigh-Wake offers many programs that are pre-approved for HRCI recertification credit or that can be applied towards recertification credit.  If you have questions about re-certifying, visit HRCI's homepage or  contact Aaron Martin, Certification DirectorGo to the quick links box on the top right side of this page to download a recertification handbook.
