Continuing Education

Continuing Your Human Resources Education Online

Ever changing laws and new technology can shift industry standards overnight. It’s vital to learn and adapt to these changes through continued education. We provide current and relevant online HR education programs that allow professionals to easily stay on top of new developments and earn recertification credits from their homes or offices.

Continued education after HR certification

Industry-specific certifications are a tremendous asset to your resume and expand your professional network. Many employers seek out certified candidates because they value the expertise and advantages you can create your updated HR knowledge base. Achieving and maintaining certifications shows employers that you’re motivated and passionate about your work.

Many HR certifications, such as HRCI and SHRM certifications, are only valid for set number of years.

As mentioned, policy and technology are constantly updated. Continued education and recertification can help ensure you don’t fall behind and are providing the best possible service to your colleagues and business.

What you need to know about HR Recertification

Recertification doesn’t have to be complicated. You can easily maintain certification by completing and recording continuing education courses. Look for efficient, online continued education programs, such as HREN’s course offerings, provide relevant training and are recognized by respected, credentialing organizations.

HRCI recertification

HR Certification Institute (HRCI) is a human resources credentialing organization. HRCI sets the standards for certification such as the Human Resources certification (PHR) and the  Senior Professional Human Resources certification (SPHR), among many others. HRCI certifications are valid for three years.

SHRM recertification

Like HRCI, the Society for Human Resources Management is an organization that offers credentials to HR professionals. SHRM offers certification for SHRM Certified Professional (SHRM-CP) and SHRM Senior Certified Professional (SHRM-CP.)

HREN is proud to offer courses that help participants earn both HRCI and SHRM recertifications.

How do you know which certification and courses are right for you? Reach out to HRCI or SHRM or speak with your employer or other HR professionals about what’s the most appropriate for your industry and current role.

What are Continuing Education or Professional Development credits?

Continuing Education credits are like academic credits and are awarded upon the completion of training courses intended to refresh or improve upon existing knowledge. Unlike academic credits, they are not awarded for academic study, but are still used to track and record continuing education accomplishments. HRCI and SHRM credits are awarded for all HREN courses.
