What is it?

The ultimate goal of the Institute for Human Resources (IHR) is to provide HR professionals with certification and accreditation within particular HR verticals or domains. In doing this, we are able to build talent pools of highly skilled and trained professionals with critical niche skills and networks that can share and deploy best practices across these key HR verticals and their organization.

The certification and accreditation process is developed through an independent board of advisors who are industry experts within each domain and have access to the latest technology, best practices and thought leadership in their space. This helps to ensure the accreditation process is relevant, meaningful, and current.

Who should become certified?

Individuals interested in furthering their career and becoming industry experts in specific HR verticals will require certification to be recognized amongst their peers, employers, and vendors. We recommend that individuals have at least two years of practical HR experience to enroll in the program as basic HR functionality and knowledge is a core requirement for this in-depth training.

Over the course of 12 months individuals who are registered in the certification process must:

  • Score 60% or above on their certification test
  • Conduct 60 or more hours in a job-related function or volunteer internship where they are utilizing these skills
