Your business needs its human resource professionals to be certified. It helps protect you, your business and your employees. That is why more and more employers are listing HR certification as “required” or “preferred” on their job postings. They have the peace of mind that their HR professionals have proven mastery of the intricate HR laws and core practices that make an organization successful.

The HR Certification Institute awards HR certification exams to HR professionals who:

  • meet strict professional experience and educational requirements
  • pass a challenging exam
  • maintain their credentials through continuing HR education

In an HR Certification Institute survey of top business leaders:

  • 50% said that recruiters consider a job candidate's certification status when they decide whom to interview, and hire, for HR positions
  • 48% said that their company believes that HR-certified professionals give them a competitive edge
  • 50% said that certified HR professionals show better motivation, HR knowledge and performance than non-certified HR professionals do

That is why the Ohio Chamber of Commerce, through our Business Academy programming, provides these essential certifications for specific webinars to help educate business professionals and strengthen Ohio’s business community.

**HR certification credits apply only to specific webinars depending on topic. Available credits for certified webinars will appear on webinar registration.


The Ohio Chamber of Commerce’s Business Academy is accredited by the National Society of Human Resource Management, the thought-leader and trailblazer of human resource matters. Our accreditation guarantees that those who participate in our curriculum have the opportunity to earn HRCI or SHRM credits (for human resource professionals) or CLE credits (employment lawyer continuing education credits).
