http://www.hrci.org/searchevents/ to search for recertification hours The most popular method for recertifying is by obtaining continuing education credits. Maintaining one ’ s PHR®, SPHR®, GPHR® or California (PHR-CA®/SPHR-CA®) credential requires certified HR professionals to accumulate 60 hours of HR-related recertification activities through one or more of the following activities: • Continuing education • First-time on-the-job projects • Instruction • Research and publishing • Leadership • Professional membership RECERTIFICATION By EXAM Some certified professionals prefer to recertify by retaking the exam. Recertification-by-examination candidates must: Take the exam before their certification cycle expires. Recertify only at their current certification level. Wait at least 12 months from the date they became certified or recertified before taking the test again. Recertification-by-examination candidates are subject to the same exam fees as outlined in this handbook and are subject to all optional service and late fees, if applicable.
Certification sets those with the credential apart from—or above— those without it. There are a number of advantages to seeking certification, including: Hiring managers consider an applicant ’ s certification when making hiring decisions. Organizations believe that hiring HR-certified professionals gives them a competitive advantage. Business leaders find HR-certified professionals to be more motivated, more knowledgeable of the HR field and stronger performers. HR professionals report that certified HR professionals create a positive impact on their organizations ’ financial performance. Certification is a public recognition of professional achievement— both within and outside of the profession. For many, achieving certification becomes a personal career goal—a way to test knowledge and to measure it against one ’ s peers. Others see certification as an aid to career advancement.
