Distance Learning Center (DLC) courses provide a useful

planning and benefits administration, including international

Once you have passed an HRCI

stay up to date on developments in HR practices. To prove you have maintained
and updated your HR knowledge, HRCI requires that you recertify every 3 years.
You can do so by:
Taking a PHR, GPHR, or SPHR recertification
exam administered by HRCI.
Earning 60 PHR, GPHR, and SPHR recertification
credits through continuing
education courses approved by HRCI; teaching an HR subject in a presentation; conducting
research on an HR topic or publishing in the HR field; providing leadership
to a committee, board, or conference; or maintaining membership in a
national professional society.
