Pre-approved for SPHR® Certification

According to the HRCI Website, those who achieve the SPHR® certification demonstrate they "have mastered the strategic and policy-making aspects of HR management as practiced in the United States. The credential is designed for the HR professional who plans, rather than implements, HR policy, focuses on the 'big picture,' has ultimate accountability in the HR department, has breadth and depth of knowledge in all HR disciplines and understands the business beyond the HR function and influences the overall organization.

​The SPHR® certification is valid for three years after testing. The only way to avoid re-taking the exam is by accumulating 60 credit hours of continuing education activities, completed before the three-year anniversary of the certification cycle, which must be HR-related. To be consider HR-related, the instructional content will be related to the SPHR® Exam Content Outline found on the HRCI Website, and adds to the certificant's knowledge of the HR field.

​The certificant can earn all 60 recertification credit hours in continuing education, including e-learning and Web-based instruction, and earn one (1) recertification credit hour for every hour of continuing education, actual instruction time. The SPHR® CE credits certificate, a downloadable PDF, is acceptable documentation for recertification.
