According to the HR Certification Institute (HRCI), the GPHR exam content outline will be updated to reflect changes and developments in the HR profession, and the functional areas addressed will expand from five to six since October 1, 2020. The six new areas will be reassigned with different weighted percentages and new naming conventions. The exams will reflect the expansion of the functional areas. The chart below shares the specific functional area changes.
Effective April 14, 2020, HRCI removed the global experience requirement to allow HR practitioners to experience and learn, while engaging in cross-border HR practices. The GPHR exams based on the new exam content outline will be available on October 1, 2020. In other words, if you are going to take the GPHR exam after October 1, 2020, please subscribe our new GPHR materials here.
