American Payroll Association (APA)


Members of the APA looking to maintain their certification status may receive recertification credit hours for Kronos courses. Courses eligible for recertification credit must contain content that falls within the CPP or FPC content outline found in the Application Handbook for Candidates. A recertification credit hour equals one hour of classroom contact; time spent during breaks or lunch does not count. The individual holding the CPP or FPC designation should retain the certificate of completion from the course and the course agenda in the recertification file folder that the American Payroll Association has provided. At time of recertification, APA may request the recertification file folder for audit purposes.


International Association for Human Resource Information Management (IHRIM)


The Human Resource Information Professional (HRIP) Certification exam is designed to assess the knowledge and competencies of professionals in the HR information management field.
