What are human resources certifications?
HR certifications are credentials that students can earn after taking an accredited HR course. These credentials are separate from bachelor’s and master’s degrees and are regarded as either additional learning or vocational training in the area of human resources. Unlike graduate/higher education certificates from colleges or online degree programs, you can get certified in HR through HR University without taking a certification exam. All you have to do is complete the online learning course.

According to Payscale.com, the average yearly salary of an HR Generalist in the US is $53,330 and an HR Manager is $68,442. Individual numbers can be higher or lower, depending on a number of factors such as the candidate's previous experience, qualifications, and employer standards.

The HR Generalist and HR Manager courses are fundamental human resources training that provides an HR certificate at the conclusion of the course. The program coursework consists of lectures, interviews, written content, and other instructional content that aims to build solid human resources found in a candidate.

Who is eligible to apply for the HR Certification Courses?
The HR Certification Courses do not have any prerequisites in regards to academic qualifications. However, at least a bachelor's degree in business administration is recommended.
How can I show my certificate/proof of course completion?
Upon completing the HR Certification Courses, you will receive a digital badge and an e-certificate. You can download both e-documents and showcase them on your website, or share them with colleagues, managers, and, in case you’re in a recruiting position, new HR candidates.
How can my employers and/or managers verify my certification status?
There are two ways you can confirm your certification status. The first is with the e-certificate and digital badge that you will receive upon completion of the course, and the second being via the certification portal. Each online certificate comes with a verification link that redirects to HR University, where managers and/or potential employers can verify your certification status.
Are HR certifications worth it?
HR certifications are worth it because the HR industry is always evolving, meaning that workers are required to keep up with the latest changes in technologies and policy. Most importantly, HR certifications can help a person increase their salary by an average of 17%. For example, if you earn $50 per hour without a certification or degree then you could make as much as $67 per hour with one. This means more money for your family and retirement fund.
What certifications do you need in HR?
In HR you need to be knowledgeable in human resources management and leadership training. HR University has both of these options available and is a great way to start your career as an HR professional. These HR certifications will not only increase your salary but also provide you with opportunities outside of just being an employee within this field.
How do I become HR certified?
To become HR certified, you complete the entirety of an HR course on HR University. As of now, they are offered only online and will be ready for in-person workshops later in 2023.
