Earn the New Standard in HR Certification


The Future of HR is SHRM–Certified

This is an exciting and pivotal time in the HR profession. Now, more than ever, HR teams are expected to assume a greater leadership role, contributing to the strategic direction of their organization.

To meet business needs, SHRM has established two competency-based certifications, the SHRM Certified Professional (SHRM-CP) for early- and mid-career professionals and the SHRM Senior Certified Professional (SHRM-SCP) for senior-level practitioners. SHRM regards the SHRM-CP and SHRM-SCP as the new global standard in certification for the HR profession.

The SHRM Body of Competency and Knowledge (SHRM BoCK™) is the foundation for these certifications. The SHRM BoCK—the product of rigorous research involving thousands of HR professionals—identifies eight key behavioral competencies and 15 HR functional areas that are critical to the success of any HR professional. (See The SHRM BoCK for additional information.)

By incorporating key HR competencies and knowledge into the SHRM-CP and SHRM-SCP exams, SHRM’s certifications demonstrate to the global business community that the credential-holder has strong capabilities in both aspects of HR practice—competency and knowledge—that are required for effective job performance.

This intensive online 7-week program combines expert instruction with the SHRM Learning System® for SHRM-CP/SHRM-SCP, so you will learn faster, retain more knowledge and stay on track for success on the exam.
