Certification for Military HR Personnel

Bridge the Gap between Military and Civilian HR

If you are a Veteran or currently serving in the armed forces, earning a credential from HR Certification Institute® (HRCI®) is a great way to enhance your professional development in human resource management. For those transitioning out of service, an HRCI credential is a must-have to translate your military experience into a civilian business role.

You have already proven yourself as a military leader. With HRCI credentials, gain the confidence you need to demonstrate business and HR leadership.
