SHRM Certification / Recertification

    For more than 65 years, SHRM has served the human resources profession and HR professionals worldwide to enhance their effectiveness on the job, develop their careers, and partner strategically with business leaders and stakeholders.

    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. These certifications are regarded as the new global standard in certification for the HR profession.

    Earning your SHRM-CP or SHRM-SCP credential makes you a recognized expert and leader in the HR field—and a valuable asset to your organization, keeping you and your organization more competitive in today's economy. This professional distinction sets you apart from your colleagues, proving your high level of knowledge and skills.
