Certification Programs — Strategic Concepts, Not Functional Skills
HCI Certification Programs are designed to change paradigms and provide a new strategic framework for human capital, talent management and leadership. HCI does not teach the type of functional skills found at SHRM, ASTD or other skills-based human capital or industry associations. Our courses teach strategic concepts, illuminate new models, and encourage leaders to think differently about their objectives, priorities, execution and outcomes.
HCI offers a rigorous and challenging curriculum for human capital professionals, talent managers and executives. Each certification program is based on cutting-edge research, best practices and innovative strategies being tested on the front lines of today's talent wars. Graduates complete a pre-class assignment, two-day or three-day course and a rigorous examination that offers reliable proof of learning that will increase their operating effectiveness, personal productivity and leadership skills.
HCI is committed to providing the best educational experience for its members. Industry-leading content experts and instructional designers develop each program to a set of strict standards that ensure a consistent, interactive, effective and engaging learning experience.
HCI offers certifications on a variety of different topics. All of which provide foundational topics in the new business science of Strategic Talent Management.
All programs include uniquely developed material that synthesizes the latest research, best practices and case studies from HCI's Online Talent Communities
Candidates must have a minimum of three years business experience, or graduate-level business degree, and successfully complete the requirements for certification.
- Complete a pre-class assignment
- Complete the two-day or three-day certification class
- Pass the certification exam at a standard of 75% or greater
Each certification is valid for a three-year period. Renewal is based on continuing education credits that demonstrate currency in the field. Credits may be earned by attending HCI learning events, completing additional courses or through outside educational activities. The accumulation of 60 credits extends the certification for three additional years. For HCS only, you can re-take the 2nd day of the course and re-pass the exam in the last year of certification in lieu of earning credits. For SWP only, you may attend an SWP Alumni Workshop and pass the exam in the last year of certification to recertify your SWP. Please refer to the "Education" tab of your online profile and download HCI's Recertification Tracker which outlines the requirements for re-certification credits.
