    Professional certifications are available from two organizations:

    HRCI -- SPHR (Sr Human Resource Professional), PHR (Human Resource Professional), GPHR (Global Human Resource Professional)

    SHRM -- SHRM-SCP and SHRM-CP

    Each of these certifications are originally obtained by taking an extensive exam.  Recertification is required every three years by obtaining credits by attending educational courses, publishing articles, providing instruction, national membership, and / or local chapter leadership.   

    HRA supports these efforts by receiving pre-approval of dinner meeting or workshop content for credits.
