HR Certification Institute Approved Provider

The HR Certification Institute has designated the Northeast Pennsylvania Manufactures and Employers Association (MAEA) as an approved provider of continuing education for certified professionals.

The benefit of this development is that individuals with a PHR/SPHR certification can earn credit toward maintaining their certification when they attend HR Certification Institute approved Northeast Pennsylvania Manufactures and Employers Association programs. Having these pre-approved continuing education courses eliminates the guesswork for recertification candidates when planning their professional development activities.

The HR Certification Institute

HR Certification Institute is the leading independent, internationally recognized certifying body for the HR profession. Established in 1976, the HR Certification Institute awards certifications to professionals who meet minimum eligibility standards and pass a rigorous examination. HR Certification Institute testing requires professionals to demonstrate their expertise in both the underlying principles of HR practice and the real-world application of those principles. To remain certified, individuals must fulfill continuing education requirements or demonstrate their current knowledge of the profession through retesting. The HR Certification Institute is an affiliate of the Society for Human Resource Management.

Approved Provider Status

HR Certification Institute Approved Providers undergo a thorough application and review process and submit to HRCI extensive information about their organizations' continuing education programs. Through being elevated to Approved Provider status, MAEA may determine and publish PHR, SPHR and GPHR recertification credit hours using the established criteria. The HR Certification Institute believes that pre-approved events meet the highest standards in the continuing education industry.
