Exam Preparation Overview
•
To maintain the integrity of its certifications, HRCI does not offer test preparation,
nor is it connected to any test-preparation product or organization.
•
There are many well-regarded test-preparation and recertification providers that
can help you get ready for HRCI’s certification exams or get recertified.
•
HRCI has compiled a list of self-study and instructional resources that are
currently available on the market.
