About the Exam
The computer-based GPHR Certification exam is made up of 140 multiple-choice questions contained in five functional areas. These areas are: strategic HR management; talent and organizational development; global talent acquisition and mobility; global compensation and benefits; and workforce relations and risk management. The strategic HR management sections accounts for the largest portion of this exam at 25%, while the workforce relations/risk management section accounts for the smallest at 15%. Test takers are granted three hours to complete this exam. This certification is valid for three years. A total of 60 recertification credits, with 15 credits of Global credits, must be earned over this three-year period to maintain certification without having to re-take the exam.
