What does it mean to be a Recruiter Academy Certified Recruiter (RACR)?
Successfully completing all requirements of the RACR program demonstrates mastery knowledge of Best Practice recruitment methodologies, tools and techniques proven successful in today’s talent-driven marketplace. Successful completion of this RACR Program ensures recruiters understand the competencies and skills required to be an Elite Recruiter and were an active participant during the education program. The ability to become certified is included in the registration fee for all RACR programs.
Our Certification Program is built on the foundation of life-long learning and a passion for continuous improvement.
With that in mind, all RACR Certifications are valid for 2 years after the year you complete the course. (Example: If the final module is delivered on 4/30/15 – your certification would be valid through 12/31/17.) NOTE: If you were a student in a class held prior to 2015 – you have been grandfathered into the 2015 year – so your certification will be valid through 12/31/17.
