The Mississippi Human Resources Certification Program began in 2005 and is administered and delivered by the Mississippi State Personnel Board.  Participants earning the HRCP designation have completed the five levels of HRCP curriculum and implemented an HR-related project at their agencies.  The purpose of the Human Resources Certification Program (HRCP) is to develop well-trained human resources practitioners in Mississippi state government by providing a comprehensive training program specifically tailored to them at both the technical and managerial levels.  HRCP focuses on the application of key HR rules, regulations, policies, procedures, and practices.

“In order to ensure a quality workforce for the State of Mississippi, MSPB recognizes the importance of offering training specially designed to equip human resources professionals with the skills they need to properly manage their agencies’ individual workforces,” MSPB Executive Director Kelly Hardwick said.

MSPB offers training programs tailored to state government entities to provide essential knowledge and leadership skills for successful public service. Graduates include executive directors and agency heads, a former statewide elected official, and top managers from agencies, boards, and commissions throughout the State and virtually every area of public service.
