HR Certified was founded by senior human resource (HR) professional and certification specialist, Anthony P. Howard, SPHR, SHRM-SCP, to help aspirant and experienced HR professionals navigate certification processes. Our mission is inspired by Anthony’s professional journey and inadvertent discovery of HR as a career choice.
Like many, Anthony’s career path was not linear. His primary goal was to overcome the poverty he experienced as a youth in inner-city Chicago, IL. His first professional role as a file clerk was the launchpad for his career in HR, as he later assumed responsibilities in benefits administration, general HR management, and most recently as a Strategic HR Business Partner in the biotechnology industry. Anthony attributes his quick progression in HR to designations from the Human Resource Certification Institute (HRCI) and Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM).
We recognize that the HR landscape can be challenging to navigate. Now, numerous providers offer a variety of certifications, and individuals are often left questioning which certification to pursue and how best to prepare. We understand your concerns because we have been where you are. We aim to take the guesswork out of getting HR certified.
