The HR Certification Institute considers work done at a “professional level” as the equivalent of exempt-level work. For purposes of eligibility for the HR Certification Institute’s exams, professional experience includes supervisory responsibility and/or creative or original work that requires advanced HR knowledge. The years of experience do not need to be current or sequential. But more recent experience is more likely to coincide with the exam’s content.
