Organisational structure

National Certification Council

Made up of representatives from industry and academia, the National Certification Council (NCC) oversees the HR standards, administration and decision making that result in the credentialling of eligible candidates seeking HR certification.

On successful completion of the four units of the AHRI Practising Certification Program (APC), candidates are eligible, at the discretion of the NCC, to be awarded HR certification and to use the CPHR and/or FCPHR post-nominal. The NCC also reviews applications for HR certification via the Senior Leaders Pathway and the Academic Pathway.
