Employment Screening Resources® (ESR), a leading global background check provider, has achieved renewal of its “Approved Provider” status from the HR Certification Institute (HRCI®), the premier credentialing and learning organization for the human resources (HR) profession, for the period of January 1, 2021, to December 31, 2021.

The renewal of its HRCI Approved Provider status allows ESR – an Approved Provider for HRCI since 2005 that was named the number one enterprise pre-employment screening leader by HRO Today in 2020 – to offer continuing HR-related education programs to certified HR professionals seeking HRCI recertification credits.

ESR offers HR professionals the ESR Online Safe Hiring Certification Course, which is an essential learning tool for workers who are responsible for risk management and due diligence in hiring and pre-employment screening. The course is currently being updated and a revised version is scheduled to be released in January 2021.

The course – the entirety of which is approved for 20 hours of HRCI recertification credits – was created by ESR founder and CEO Attorney Lester Rosen, the author of “The Safe Hiring Manual,” and is divided into seven units that are designed to offer a detailed understanding of current issues in hiring employees safely and legally.

Each unit of the course ends with a 25-question quiz and includes a study guide handout learners may download to help them pass the quiz.
