CRP Certification Curriculum

At RPI, we understand that being able to deliver positive employee experiences requires the right knowledge and skill set. That’s why we created the Certified Recognition Professional® (CRP) program – four courses designed to guide you through the latest information and research on building a successful recognition program. Using our Best Practice model with seven strategic recognition categories ensures measurable results.

Expand your knowledge. Excel in your job. Maximize your professional growth by taking advantage of RPI’s in-depth knowledge, resources, and strategies. RPI has helped hundreds of global recognition professionals equip themselves with the skills and know-how to produce bottom-line results for their organizations.

About the courses
Effective recognition programs are dynamic cycles of assessment, strategy, implementation, and review. While this cycle is easy to define, it's difficult to execute. RPI has established performance standards and criteria for a robust and effective recognition program, which is a must-have in today’s workplace.

  • Structuring Recognition Systems for Success – introduces RPI’s Seven Best Practice Standards with in-depth coverage of each standard 
  • Creating a Recognition Culture – highlights cultural considerations, engagement concepts and motivational theories
  • Building a Blueprint – provides baseline assessment tools, techniques for setting recognition strategy, enlisting management support, and defining measurements 
  • Designing and Implementing Recognition Programs – focuses on program design specifics including demographics, generational considerations, multi-site implementation and program evaluation
