HR certification distinguishes HR professionals who are practising effective and business-savvy HR, and are capable of bringing their HR expertise to the role of true partner to the business.


HR certification can be achieved by following one of three pathways. Eligibility for each of the pathways is dependent on individual experience, skills and capability.

Use AHRIs Certification Pathfinder to help you assess the pathway most relevant for you.


Underpinned by the globally benchmarked Model of Excellence, the AHRI Practising Certification Program is an industry-recognised program, equivalent to a post-graduate level qualification. Find out more or enrol for the next intake.
