The Human Resource Information Professional (HRIP) Certification examination is comprised of multiple-choice questions. (The Published Exam contains approximately 75 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 HRIP examinations and is the method of delivery at Kryterion Testing Centers and at IHRIM hosted exams.
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.
The HRIP examination is developed based on the examination blueprint. The blueprint details the percentages of questions contained in each Domain.
IHRIM offers three delivery methods to accommodate individuals (as well as groups) to take the exam, including conveniently located testing centers around the world, live proctoring that allows candidates to take the exam wherever and whenever is most convenient, and via client hosted locations.
