It’s easy to say 'I do AgileHR’ but most people lack the practical know-how. The AgileHR Certification genuinely challenges your learning, takes you out of your comfort zone and sets the new professional standard in HR. Future-proof yourself! 


Achieving Certification

1. Complete the full AgileHR Certified Practitioner program, alongside pre-work and post-course reading (note if you decide to start with AgileHR Foundations Day 1 only, you can decide to complete Day 2 and the certification assessment at a later date).

2. Choose your preferred HR topic area from the following list:

  • Talent (attraction, recruitment, on-boarding, engagement and development)
  • Performance and growth (people, capabilities and teams)
  • Learning and development
  • Organisation design and operational models (structure, leading HR, executive team support and coaching, planning, reporting and follow-up)
  • Leadership and management
  • HR operations and services (employee lifecycle, admin processes and services, payroll, wellbeing, absence)
  • Incentives, rewards and benefits
  • HR information systems and technology (development, sourcing, implementation and adoption)

3. Prepare your application assignment by applying your AgileHR know-how to a real organisational project or redesign an earlier case/project from your career.

4. Prepare your solution and suggestions to an AgileHR case study, keeping in mind The Agile People Ops Capability Model©. Get ready to present your thinking to your assessors virtually.

5. Undertake the virtual certification assessment (1 hour video call):

a. Application assignment presentation and discussion (approx. 30 minutes) 

b. Present your ideas and thoughts on the AgileHR case study displaying The Agile People Ops Capability Model© behaviours and thinking (approx. 20 minutes).

c. Towards the end of the assessment a new unprepared hypothetical component is introduced to assess your ability in applying AgileHR mindset and practices in the moment (approx. 10 minutes)

6. Achieve a 65% pass grade against The Agile People Ops Capability Model© and receive feedback from your assessor/s

  • You receive feedback on the ten Agile People Ops Capabilities © according to the behaviours, thinking and skills demonstrated.

7. You are certified! And you are now certain that AgileHR Certified Practitioners really know what they are talking about.
