The IHRP Certification is part of the HR Industry Manpower Plan’s efforts to strengthen the capabilities of the HR Profession. It aims to strengthen the HR standards of excellence and ensure that certified HR professionals have the necessary skills, knowledge and attributes to deliver positive business impact. As part of IHRP’s efforts to maintain a deep and relevant question bank for assessment, IHRP will be conducting a Field Test for newly developed assessment questions. Your participation in the Field Test will be extremely critical to the validation of questions that will be included in future assessments.

What is the Certification Framework?

Why get yourself certified?

As a HR practitioner, getting yourself IHRP-certified:

  • gives you an industry-endorsed mark of quality that acknowledges your mastery of HR competencies and behaviours that are increasingly valued by employers.
  • signals to your peers and employers that you are always current in your role through certification and recertification. 
  • demonstrates your commitment to career-long learning, progress and mastery in the key capabilities that will prepare you to support management and workforce through business transformation.

Why participate in the field test?

We are seeking volunteers to field test Papers A, B and C across IHRP Certified Professional (IHRP-CP) and IHRP Senior Professional (IHRP-SP)

The standard fee for the 2 certification levels is as follows:

Fee (S$)
