HRCI Pre-Approved: Earn up to 7.0 Recertification Credits

HRCI Pre-ApprovedLet's talk recertification. If you are certified through HRCI, you likely fall in one of two categories:

  1. The Procrastinator - you wait until the year (or months) leading up to the expiration of your certification to start compiling credits. You've simply been too busy with work and family...the deadline has snuck up on you.
  2. The Antithesis - you are the opposite of a procrastinator. You begin hoarding credits the moment you've recertified. Perhaps you're motivated by of the fear of the traumatic testing experience. Or, maybe you're just especially organized and proactive.

It's amazing how fast three years can go by when it comes to recertification. Whichever of the above categories you belong, we're not judging. Chances are we're in the same position as you...we all need credits. Regardless, you would be wise to take advantage of the opportunity and value offered by LWHRA's 2013 Symposium.


Look at it this way. For a day of learning, sharing, and socializing ("networking"), you could earn up to 7.0 General recertification credits. That's over 11% of the credits needed to recertify.


Looking for those hard to find Strategic Business Management credits? You'll find them here at the 2013 Symposium. Plan your schedule right and you could earn a whopping 6.5 Strategic Business Management credits...in one day.


So register today and join us in Smashing the HR Box while taking a big bite out of your recertification credits. Speaking of bites, did we mention there will be wonderful food and snacks?

The use of this seal is not an endorsement by the HR Certification Institute of the quality of the program. It means that this program has met the HR Certification Institute's criteria to be pre-approved for recertification credit.
