Validation of Experience

CPHR candidates must demonstrate a minimum of three (3) or more years of HR work experience at the administrative and advisory level in Human Resources with the last ten (10) years as the final step to the completion of the CPHR designation.

HR practitioners can work toward the Experience Requirement in any sector of the economy: industry, government, public practice, professional associations, education, healthcare, or not-for-profits — essentially anywhere that has a human resources management function.

Assessment of experience is made through an assessment process administered by your member association.
