IHRIM's HRIP Recertification Program supports the ongoing educational and professional development of individuals who have attained the HRIP credential.
To retain the HRIP credential, IHRIM requires all certificants to recertify every three years either by accumulating 60 Recertification Program Hours (RCH) through continuing education, instruction, research and publishing, membership in IHRIM, or by retaking the examination ("recertification by examination").
Recertification through continuing education and professional activities is designed to:
Your participation in continuing education activities indicates your commitment to ongoing learning and professional development.
Some certified professionals prefer to recertify by retaking the exam. Recertification by examination candidates must take the exam before their certification cycle expires. Recertification by examination candidates are subject to the same HRIP Certification exam fees as outlined in the HRIP Certification Handbook.
The recertification term shall be three (3) years commencing on the date the exam was successfully passed.
No later than thirty (30) days before the date of certification expires, an applicant for recertification must:
The recertification credit hour (RCH) is the measuring unit used to quantify approved learning and professional service activities. Typically, one RCH is earned for every one hour spent in a planned, structured learning experience or activity. Activities must be related to HR information management topics that are substantially consistent with the knowledge domains and objectives outlined in the latest edition of the Human Resource Information Professional Examination Blueprint and involve appropriate expert resources.
The HRIP Recertification Program organizes RCHs into 4 categories. For complete information on the 4 categories, please go to the HRIP Recertification Program Guide.
Category 1: Professional Membership
Category 2: Continuing Education/Professional Development (no maximum number of RCHs per three year term)
Category 3: Professional and Volunteer Activities
Category 4: On-the-Job Experience (20 RCHs maximum per three year term)
You are responsible for tracking your RCH activities as they occur. The most efficient way is to record them using the IHRIM Recertification Application and Credit Report Form.
You must report your RCHs and complete the renewal process prior to the end of your HRIP certification term in order to avoid suspension of your credential(s) (refer to the Suspended Status section in this handbook for more details).
If you do not earn and report the required RCHs within your certification term, your HRIP certification status will be suspended. The six-month suspension period can be used to earn and report the required RCHs.
No later than thirty (30) days before the date your certification expires, you must submit payment of the renewal fee and complete the IHRIM Recertification Application and Credit Report Form supporting you have met the 60 Recertification Credit Hours criteria for recertification.
The renewal fee for IHRIM members is US$75 and US$150 for non-members.
After processing the completed application and the renewal payment, IHRIM will send you an updated certificate with the new active certification term dates. Please allow four to six weeks for postal delivery of your new certification.
You may cancel your HRIP credential at any time. To do so, contact IHRIM in writing. IHRIM will not refund portions of any fee.
