Prepare For Your Test

The professional is expected to have at least 3-5 years of work experience in HR technology solutions or HR information management. However, IHRIM does not require the work experience to take the exam.

The HRIP examination is developed based on the examination blueprint. The blueprint details the percentages of questions contained in each Domain.  We recommend that candidates review the examination blueprint to see if additional review is needed in one or more content areas.

An HRIP Study Guide is available for purchase through IHRIM’s Online Store. The guide is not intended to be a complete study resource. It is an overview of the body of knowledge content areas and will help to identify areas where additional study and/or work experience may be necessary prior to testing.

IHRIM also offers an HRIP Certification Exam Review Course.  The Exam Review Course is designed to help candidates review for the HRIP certification exam. It is not intended to replace professional experience or other sources of achieving professional competence. The course does not teach to the exam, but is a refresher on knowledge you’ve gained in your employment.
