Benefits of Certification

 

If you’re an HR professional and become certified, you show you know the most current principles and core practices of HR management, you become more marketable when you compete for top HR positions, and you raise the professional confidence among your staff and your peers.

 

Benefits of Recertification

Recertification demonstrates your continued dedication to stay up to date with the rapidly changing HR profession and is a means by which certified professionals demonstrate their currency and maintain their professional edge. 

 

To retain the PHR, SPHR or GPHR designations, HRCI requires recertifing 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. For more information about how to recertify, please see the HRCI webpage at www.hrci.org

 

The recertification requirements for the SHRM-CP and SRHM-SCP are similar to the requirements for HRCI. Recertification is done through activities which advance your education, your organization and your profession.  For details on SHRM recertification, please visit:  http://www.shrm.org/certification/recertification/pages/default.aspx

FCSHRM's certification committee promotes the benefits of professional certification by the HR Certification Institute (HRCI) and SHRM; plans and conducts study groups as needed; assists and advises members seeking test application, study materials and resources; recognizes individuals who have demonstrated achievement of national standards by passing the exam; and offers recertification credits for many of our regular programs and workshops.
