Exam Overview and Fees

Only the HRIP review products purchased through the IHRIM website are approved and promoted by IHRIM.

The Human Resource Information Professional (HRIP) Certification examination is comprised of 75 multiple-choice questions.  The multiple choice format is considered the most effective for use in standardized tests. Computer-based testing (CBT) is the standard method of administration for IHRIM’s HRIP examinations.

The allotted time to complete the published exam is ninety (90) minutes. It may take some credential candidates less than the allotted time to complete the examination.

Examination Blueprint

The HRIP examination is developed based on the examination blueprint. The blueprint details the percentages of questions contained in each Domain.

Examination Options

IHRIM offers two main delivery methods to accommodate candidates to sit for the exam, including conveniently located testing centers around the world or recorded proctoring via webcam.  These options allow candidates to take the exam wherever and whenever is most convenient for their schedule.
Test Exam Centers:

When registering for an exam, you will have access to a locator that allows you to find a center and time that is convenient for you. Look for preferred location by country, province/state, city or by postal code and a list of available testing centers will be displayed. Choose the facility you prefer and, once selected, the date and time of the exam.
