IHRIM’s HRIP Recertification Program supports the ongoing educational and professional development of individuals who have attained the HRIP credential.
Your HRIP credential will be active for three years starting from the date certification has been granted. Maintain your HRIP certification by earning 60 recertification credit hours before your renewal date or earn recertification through examination.
No later than 30 days before the date of certification expires, an applicant for recertification must:
Earn Your Credits
Earn a minimum of 60 recertification credit hours (RCH) during each three-year certification term.
Pay the Fee
The application renewal fee is $110 for IHRIM members and $200 for non-members.
After processing your completed application and renewal payment, we’ll send you an updated certificate via email with your new certification term dates.
Continuing Education & Professional Activities
Your participation in continuing education activities indicates your commitment to ongoing learning and professional development.
You will be responsible for maintaining a log of your credit hours and documentation.
Recertification Credit Hours (RCH)
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 HRIP Exam Blueprint and involve appropriate expert resources.
The HRIP Recertification Program organizes RCHs into four categories.
Continuing Ed & Professional Development
Professional & Volunteer Activities
Recertification by Examination
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 processes and fees as new exam takers.
Other Approved HRIP Approved Education Providers
IHRIM’s Approved Education Provider Program allows third-party education providers the opportunity to award RCH’s for their HR information systems related educational offerings. These RCH’s can be used by individuals with the HRIP designation to meet the recertification credit requirements for maintaining their designation.
