Know of someone new to the HR practice or someone who would like to enter the profession? If so, the new Associate Professional in Human Resources™ (aPHR™) certification may be the perfect suggestion!

The aPHR™, an industry first, is designed for:

  • Recent graduates with an interest in an HR career.
  • New HR professionals, including professionals who are switching careers.
  • Line managers who have some HR responsibilities and want to expand their roles.
  • Military personnel seeking HR professional development or transitioning into civilian HR roles.

For new HR professionals, the aPHR™ will designate foundational knowledge of HR practice and provide the boost of confidence needed to stay on a successful HR career and certification path. As they grow and gain real-world experience, the aPHR establishes a sound launching point for continuous education and sets the stage for earning HRCI’s more advanced credentials such as the Professional in Human Resources® (PHR®) and Senior Professional in Human Resources® (SPHR®).

In short, the aPHR™ is a great way to make a smoother, more productive transition into the HR field. CHROs and hiring managers say they will look for the aPHR as proof of knowledge, commitment and passion for the practice of HR.
