HRCI While what is now known as the Human Resource Certification Institute (HRCI) began certifying HR professionals in 1976, it truly got its start in September of 1973, when the board of directors of what was then called the American Society for Personnel Administration (ASPA) voted to approve the creation of a professional accreditation program for human resource managers. The steps toward building a national certification program for HR professionals began more than 50 years ago, as personnel managers worked to create a national association for their profession. In the fall of 1948, as organizational meetings for ASPA were being held, Herbert Heneman, Jr., Ph.D., published the article, \"Qualifying the Professional Industrial Relations Worker,\" which focused on the need for certifying personnel professionals. Heneman, a professor of industrial relations at the University of Minnesota, wrote that the keys to starting a certification program were: A code of ethics. An objective measure of technical competence. Early in the 1970s, the ASPA board of directors began serious discussions about creating a national certification program, but the board shied away from using the term \"certification.\" The program could only test people on their level of knowledge, but there was a fear that people might equate \"certification\" with competency. In 1972, the board established the ASPA Task Force on Accreditation and named Gordon R. Scott, vice president of personnel for Fisher Scientific Co. of Pittsburgh, to head the task force. Under Scott's leadership, the task force completed its study in less than a year and recommended that ASPA support an accreditation program. At its annual fall meeting in September 1973. the ASPA board endorsed the task force's recommendation, and the ASPA Accreditation Program was born. The group faced the formidable task of building a national program from scratch. The job required a remarkable amount of dedication, hard work and stamina. By June 1975, the accreditation task force dissolved and the ASPA Accreditation Institute (AAI) was incorporated. One of its first steps was to create six functional standards committees. These committees were essential in defining the body of knowledge within the following functional areas: Employment, placement and personnel planning. Training and development. Compensation and benefits. Health, safety and security. Employee and labor relations. Personnel research. In 1989, in conjunction with ASPA changing its name to the Society for Human Resource Management, PAI made its final name change -- to the Human Resource Certification Institute (HRCI), better reflecting the critical role the organization played in the HR community. The certification program for HR professionals has finally taken hold. Since February 1976, more than 53,000 HR professionals have been certified. During the first few years, the numbers of applicants for the certification exams was in the hundreds rather than the thousands, and by the end of 1978, only 753 people had taken the accreditation exam. By contrast, in 2001, there are more than 48,000 HR professionals with the PHR or SPHR designation. And, in 2001, more than 24,000 applied for one of the examinations-an unrivaled symbol of professional achievement
