Thomas International is pleased to now provide CHRP recertification points to newly trained certified users of Thomas International’s behavior assessments and aptitude testing. Internationally, the HRCI is the recognized HR certification leader and Thomas International is now a pre-approved provider of recertification credits for the Professional Human Resources (PHR), Senior Professional in Human Resources (SPHR), and Global Professional in Human Resources (GPHR) designations.
