Quality Preparation Is the Key to Success

The program focuses on the body of competency and knowledge; helps you assess your competency level; refreshes areas you may not currently be practicing. Periodic progress checks and homework exercises include sample questions to reinforce classroom sessions and topics that may appear on the certification exam. A recent study showed HR certified individuals are more marketable in their careers, serve in higher level job positions and enjoy a higher level of credibility.* It also reported that employers believe certification demonstrates an employee’s commitment to the HR profession, adds validity and credibility to the department, assures current and up-to-date knowledge and provides opportunities for development.
