Frequently Asked Questions on Conference Recertification
 

Thank you for attending the 2012 HR Florida State Conference & Expo. If you are a certified professional through the HR Certification Institute, this event has been approved for a maximum 17 credits toward your recertification. To assist you in documenting your attendance, listed below are the commonly asked questions we receive about recording recertification credits. 

Please note:
• Use Program I/D for general credit only. Do not use if you are recording Strategic or International recertification credit.  See instructions below for entering specific credit and additional general credits.
• If you attended all of the concurrent sessions, the Program I/D is pre?approved for total of 17.00 credits.
• The Program I/D is on Page 8 and 42 of the conference program.
• A PHR may attend any pre?approved session for Strategic or International credit and receive general credit.
If you have additional questions (not reflected in this FAQ), please feel free to contact us at certification@hrflorida.org. Thanks and we look forward to seeing you next year at the Hilton Bonnet Creek in Orlando!

1. How many recertification credits will be awarded for the conference? 

 If you attend all general and concurrent sessions offered, including over lunch, and both of the Masters Series sessions on Monday, the conference provides a maximum 17 general recertification credits. Specific Credit:
Strategic Management Credits – 16
International Credits – 11

2. If I attend a pre-conference workshop, do I receive recertification credit?

Yes, pre-conference workshops have individual Program I/D numbers separate from the conference. The Certification Prep pre-conference workshop is the only session not eligible for recertification credit (for obvious reasons).

3. If I don’t attend all of the sessions, how would I record individual sessions in my recertification file?

Do not enter the Program I/D into your recertification file.
• General, Strategic Management and International credit sessions, and Masters Series sessions may be listed as separate groups in the “Title and Description of Program” field in your   recertification file.
• For each grouped listing, add up the total hours of the sessions attended. (Recertification is awarded on an hour-for-hour basis, up to the quarter hour.)

4. What is the difference between the HR Certification Institute’s Recertification Credit Tracker, included in the conference program, and the HR Certification Institute’s Recertification Credit form?

The credit tracker that is included in your conference program on page 42 is for notating the concurrent sessions that you attended. The HR Certification Institute Recertification Credit form inserted in the program is the official record of what sessions have been awarded specific credit or are not eligible for recertification credit. Both forms are to help you track the sessions you attended. You are not required to send these forms to the HR Certification Institute. Click here for full form (updated 9/24/2012).

5. How much credit is awarded for each session? 

Credit is awarded on an hour-for-hour basis, excluding meals, exhibit hall hours and any non HR-related sessions, such as those considered personal development. That means each regular one-hour concurrent session is 1 recertification credit. Masters Series sessions are worth 2 recertification credits. On pages 44-78 of theconference book you will find session descriptions and corresponding credit.

6. How do I know which sessions are approved for strategic management or  international credit?

Refer to the HR Certification Institute Recertification Credit Form inserted into the conference program for the official credits. You may also click here for a downloadable copy (updated 9/24/2012). NOTE: The official record is the HR Certification Institute Recertification Credit form.

7. If I attend strategic or international credit sessions, how do I record it in my HR Certification Institute recertification file?

• Do not enter the Program I/D into your recertification file.
• Strategic Management and International credit sessions, and Masters Series sessions may be listed as separate groups in the “Title and Description of Program” field in your recertification file.
• For each grouped listing, add up the total hours of the sessions attended. (Recertification is awarded on an hour-for-hour basis, up to the quarter hour.)

8. How do I record Masters Series sessions?

• Follow the same instructions as #7. Enter in the appropriate credit category.
• Do not enter the Program I/D into your recertification file.
• Enter Masters Series sessions attended in the “Title and Description of Program” field in your recertification file.
• For each grouped listing, add up the total hours of the sessions attended. (Recertification is awarded on an hour-for-hour basis, up to the quarter hour.) 

9. What if I did not attend any Masters Series sessions and I’m submitting all sessions for general credit?

• If you attended 17 sessions, enter Program I/D for 17 general credits.
If you attended less than 17 sessions do not enter the Program I/D into your recertification file.
Enter the individual sessions attended. Refer to #3.
If you attended more than 17 sessions (pre-conference sessions) enter the Program I/D into the recertification file for the regular sessions attended and then refer to #3 on how to record the additional sessions.

10. How long should I retain the HR Certification Institute Recertification Credit Tracker and Credit Forms?

You may be selected for a random audit. It is your responsibility to retain your
(1) Registration receipt as attendance verification and
(2) HR Certification Institute Recertification Credit Tracker and
(3) Credit form as documentation of your attendance for six months following the end of your recertification cycle and submission of your recertification application.
