What Are the Differences Between HR Certifications?

The Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) offers two main certification programs: SHRM-Certified Professional (SHRM-CP) and SHRM Senior Certified Professional (SHRM-SCP). The SHRM-CP is geared towards HR professionals who are early in their careers and have less than 4 years of experience, while the SHRM-SCP is intended for more experienced HR professionals with at least 5 years of experience. The aPHR (Associate Professional in Human Resources) is a certification offered by the HR Certification Institute (HRCI) and is designed for entry-level HR professionals or those who are new to the field. The SPHR (Senior Professional in Human Resources) is also offered by the HRCI and is intended for more experienced HR professionals who have at least 5 years of experience in the field and have a strategic focus in their HR work. In general, the SHRM certifications are more broad-based and cover HR management and strategy, while the HRCI certifications focus more on the technical aspects of HR.
