Q. Where do I go to schedule my exam?
A. To get started, sign in to your HRCI account and navigate to My Exam Applications>Submitted. Then click the “Schedule/Reschedule” button to schedule your exam in the Pearson VUE system. After you’ve selected the exam from the pre-approved exams list, choose the “home or office” option to schedule an online exam. Follow the remaining prompts to complete the scheduling process. Once you have successfully scheduled your exam appointment, you will receive a confirmation email with your appointment details and important information to know for your exam.
Q. How do I reschedule or cancel an exam online?
A. Sign in to your HRCI account and select the exam you’d like to reschedule or cancel from ‘Upcoming Appointments.’ You will receive an email confirming any changes to your appointment. Don’t forget to click ‘Confirm Reschedule’ on the final screen to ensure your changes have been saved.
Q. How does online testing affect HRCI’s accreditation?
A. HRCI certification programs remain fully accredited by the National Commission for Certifying Agencies (NCCA). We have applied for an exception that has allowed the use of online proctoring. We will continue to evaluate our online test delivery options and accreditation requirements.
Q. Is online proctoring available worldwide for all exam types?
A. During this initial phase, the OnVUE proctoring is limited by exam type and geographic location. Candidates must reside in the USA and Canada and have qualified to take one of the following exam types: aPHR®, PHR®, SPHR®, GPHR®, or PHRca®. HRCI is committed to making our certifications accessible and available to a broad audience. We continue to evaluate testing options for all certifications and geographic locations. We will share updates with our worldwide network once they become available.
Q. How do I check in and launch my online proctored exam?
A. Before you take an HRCI online exam, test your system and simulate the check-in process using the same computer and from the same location that you’ll use on test day. Please read the Getting Started Guide for a step-by-step overview of the process.
Q. Where can I get more information if I have additional questions?
