    HR Certification Institute

    HRCI Offers Three Certifications for HR Professionals:

    • PHR® (Professional in Human Resources)
    • SPHR® (Senior Professional in Human Resources)
    • GPHR® (Global Professional in Human Resources)

    Certification is a voluntary action by a professional group to establish a system to grant recognition to professionals who have met a stated level of training and work experience. Certified individuals are usually issued a certificate attesting that they have met the standards of the credentialing organization and are entitled to make the public aware of their credentialed status, usually through the use of initials (i.e., PHR or SPHR) after their names.

    Certifications differ from certificate programs because certifications include an experience component. Certificate programs, on the other hand, award certificates once a course of study has been completed and do not require previous work experience. You can get more information by visiting the certification website.

    HRCI exams are administered to more approximately 10,000 candidates at Thomson Prometric testing centers throughout the world during any given testing window.

    To coordinate such an undertaking, HRCI works with two vendors, Professional Examination Service (PES) and Thomson Prometric. PES receives and processes applications and assists with development of the exam forms. Thomson Prometric administers the exams in their testing centers throughout the world. These testing centers are built specifically to Thomson Prometric standards in terms of testing atmosphere and test security.

    Before taking the exam, all candidates are encouraged to review the test center rules published in the handbook. These rules are standard for all programs using Prometric testing facilities and help ensure a consistent testing atmosphere.
