Professional Human Resources (PHR) certification is an option for Human Resources (HR) employees or individuals who wish to further their careers through proof of competencies. PHR certification means mastery in subject matter pertaining to Human Resources topics, including the areas of Employee and Labor Relations, Talent Acquisition, Business and Work Management, Development, and Compensation and Benefits.

Organizations providing certification information and exams will post mandatory requirements needed on their websites in order to qualify to take the exam in terms of a candidate's experience in Human Resources and level of education. Degreed individuals will meet requirements with less years of experience required as opposed to those without degrees.

A person wanting to obtain PHR certification must first find an organization that provides content, preparation materials and testing on the subject matters, either online or with an educational program, such as a college or university. When prepared, the candidate schedules and takes an exam. Application and exam fees apply, and may total around $400-500 combined.

Know that in order to maintain PHR status, ongoing re-certification is required.
