MAINTAIN YOUR CERTIFICATION with SHRM (Society for Resource Management)

Recertification will be required every three years, before each cycle end date. Professionals will need to earn 60 Professional Development Credits (PDCs), within their recertification cycle begin and end dates, in order to recertify. Recertification credits will be awarded for the PDC categories of Advance Your Education, Advance Your Profession and/or Advance Your Organization.

MAINTAIN YOUR CERTIFICATION with HRCI (HR Certification Institute)

After passing an HRCI certification exam, you are required to renew your certification every three years. You can achieve this by completing professional development activities and demonstrating professional achievement to receive recertification credits. This includes reporting qualified HR-related activities, such as seminars, online materials, webinars, books, online courses and conferences. You can even earn credit for professional achievements such as implementing a new program at work, serving as a volunteer HR expert, conducting original HR-related research or maintaining an HR membership. If you wish to do so, you may also choose to retake your HRCI certification exam to recertify.

Learners who successfully complete these courses will be awarded SHRM/HRCI credits (completing all assignments in the course, and scoring a minimum of 70% on the course self-assessment).
