Credentials for HR Professionals: Time to Set Yourself Apart!
Certification is a voluntary action by a professional group to establish a system to grant recognition to professionals who have met a stated level of training and work experience. Certified individuals are entitled to make the public aware of their credentialed status, usually through the use of initials after their names.
There are certification options provided by SHRM and HRCI.
