Recertification Process

Certification is a mark of excellence. It demonstrates that the certified individual has the knowledge to ensure the quality of products and services. Certification is an investment in your career and in the future of your employer. Recertification takes up to 90 days to process from the date the file is deemed complete; therefore, it is recommended that applicants begin the process at least 90 days prior to their certification expiration date. Failure to recertify in a timely manner could result in your status becoming expired and loss of business opportunities.

Recertification by Credits

As a certified CHRG, CHRP and CHRM Professionals, you will have an online profile and be able to track your credits earned throughout your 3-year recertification period ending on or before the 90 days of certification expiry date. Once your recertification application is complete and has been approved, your next 3-year recertification period will begin from your existing end date. The owner will receive an auto e-mail from IIHR that contains the instructions for Recertification 90 days prior to the certificate expiration date. We recommend all the applicants to record the recertification activities since IIHR will not review your activities untill we receive your application and payments

In order to maintain your credential, you must earn a total of 75 recertification credits within a three-year recertification cycle.

  • You may earn 75 recertification credits at any time during your three-year recertification cycle. You have the option to earn all your credits in one year or during the course of the three-year cycle.
  • Additional credits earned beyond the required 75 credits cannot be “rolled over” to the next reporting cycle.

Recertification Cycle

The Certified Human Resource Generalist CHRG®, Certified Human Resource Professional CHRP® credentials are valid for three years. The expiration date is printed on your certificate and also can find out on Certification Exam Results page by entering your registration number.

Reporting Year

The reporting year is the actual year that you are required to submit the 75 credits earned over the three-year recertification cycle and the recertification reporting fee. All credits must be earned by June 30 of your reporting year. The standard deadline to report credits is August 15 and the late deadline to report credits is October 15.

Reporting Credits

IIHR will send reminder notifications via e-mail. Non-receipt of a recertification reminder does not waive the requirement to recertify and will not serve as an appeal to revocation. Please notify IIHR if your e-mail or other contact information changes.

Once you have earned and logged all 75 credits, submit the Recertification Reporting Form . This form is available online under Resources –> Forms & Downloads or at our Administrative office. Please complete the form as indicated, scan it and mail to IIHR. You may only submit this form once all 75 recertification credits have been earned. Therefore, do not send in the Recertification Reporting Form multiple times with less than 75 recertification credits reported.

All policies, procedures and decisions regarding the Recertification Reporting Guidelines are approved by the Certification Committee. The Certification Committee provides ongoing oversight to the program and periodically reviews and revises the policies to ensure the practical and equitable application of recertification procedures.
