Taking HR certification to next level

CHRP could use fine-tuning to prepare practitioners for senior roles

I have my Certified Human Resources Professional (CHRP) designation and I am currently going through the recertification process the second time around.

So, it’s probably in my best interest to try to put a positive spin on the CHRP and help raise the profile of the designation. But, contrary to what people might think, this blog isn’t about shameless self-promotion.

Therefore, in good conscience, I have to admit the CHRP in its current format isn’t quite as comprehensive, rigorous or necessary as some people believe.
