Certification Information

HR certification is a career-long commitment that shows your peers, your employees and your organization that you have mastered the core HR principles and that you are dedicated to staying current in your profession.

To become certified, you must meet strict professional experience and educational requirements before taking an exam. To remain certified, you must recertify every three years to make sure that you stay current in the HR profession. You display your certification by putting the credentials after your name.

The MVSHRM Chapter offers HR Certification programs to obtain recertification credits each year at our Monthly Meetings and Annual Conferences.  Please visit our website Calendar each month to learn of upcoming events.

If you have any questions regarding certification, please contact MVSHRM Professional Development Chair, Kim Hatzinger at [email protected] or 315-859-4689.

There are available resources to get you prepared for either the SHRM or HRCI certifications:
