If you have a PHR, SPHR or similar designation through HRCI, then you know what it's like having to stay on top of your continuing education credits so that you can renew every three years. But if you're like me, remembering a deadling three years from now is a recipe for disaster. So "Happy Birthday!", HRCI is changing the renewal of your certification to coincide with your birth month. That means, you just need to remember to have your credits in order every three birthdays. This change will occur next year in February, so make sure you read up on the specifics in this letter from HRCI.
