Are you an experienced HR professional with at least five years' HR experience, or an HR graduate with at least two years' HR experience?
Do you want to take your career to the next level and be recognised as a Certified HR Practitioner?
If so, the AHRI Practising Certification Program (APC) is ideal for you.
"Certification played a huge role in my career progression as it accelerated it by five years. Had I not completed the program I wouldn't be where I am today, or have achieved what I have."
Jessica Kaaden CPHR, HR Business Partner, Office of Public Prosecutions, Victoria, and double AHRI Award winner 2016
Advance your HR career
Become a partner to your business by enrolling in the AHRI Practising Certification Program. This program is equivalent to an AQF Level 8 postgraduate certificate level and offers you advanced entry into Masters of HR or MBA qualifications.
You will develop the professional HR capabilities and leadership behaviours to:
- Apply HR thought leadership and insight to foster a productive and sustainable culture that drives individual and organisational objectives,
- Build organisational capability and influence organisational objectives, and
- Increase your profile in your organisation and win that promotion.
Upon graduation, you will be recognised as a Certified HR Practitioner.
The APC Program is underpinned by the globally benchmarked AHRI Model of Excellence. With this program, AHRI leads the way in ensuring that HR certification recognises HR capability as a combination of:
- What you know and
- How you apply this knowledge in practice.
The APC Program is one of four pathways to attaining HR certification in Australia.
Work-integrated with real impact
This work-integrated program examines in depth the key functions of HR management competencies and how you can apply them to real problems in the business environment.
The final capstone unit 4 consists of a work-based project where the real business impact of your HR initiative is measured and assessed. Access to a workplace is essential for you to complete this final unit and meet all requirements for professional HR certification.
