aPHR™- Why get certified?

HRCI certification is a career-long commitment demonstrating to your peers and your organization that you are dedicated to staying current in the ever-changing field of human resources. To maintain the credentials, certification holders are required to re-certify their designation every three years (3) through HR-related activities. To the individual: HR certification sets HR professionals apart from those who are not certified and demonstrates foundational knowledge of Human Resources. To the organization: Statistics show that almost 70 percent of a company’s expenses are HR-related. HRCI certification provides organizations with the peace of mind that their staff is staying on top of current HR laws, regulations and best practices.

Specifically, the aPHR™ certification will validate your HR knowledge through letters earned from HRCI. Whether you are seeking entry into the HR profession, a promotion or recognition for your HR knowledge, the aPHR™ will enhance your resume.

With the aPHR™, you will demonstrate:

  •    Mastery of foundational HR knowledge based on the most trusted and credible HR certification authority, HRCI.

  •    Commitment and passion ― not only to enter the HR practice, but to remain in the practice as a dedicated and continuous-learning contributor.

  •    Confidence to stay on a successful HR career path – always growing through real-world experience and ― along the way ― earning HRCI’s more advanced credentials such as the PHR™, SPHR™ and GPHR™
