Accelerate Your Career

SHRM's new members-only career resources can help fast-track your HR career development with easy-to-use tools that assess your HR skills and competencies and guide you toward further training and development. Based on the SHRM Competency Model, these three easy steps will get you on your way to becoming the best HR professional you can be:  

  1. Take the Competency Self-Assessment (CSA) to identify your competency strengths and developmental needs.
  2. Use the Development Activity Wizard to get tailored learning and development activity recommendations to help build your HR expertise and competency proficiency.
  3. Create a Competency Development Plan to outline your personalized strategy for putting your development goals into action. 

If you are a SHRM-CP- or SHRM-SCP-certified member, you will receive one professional development credit (PDC) per year for each calendar year you complete the CSA. Use it to evaluate how best to target your professional development efforts in earning the 60 PDCs required to maintain your SHRM-CP or SHRM-SCP credential over your three-year recertification period.
