Education Programs

For those looking for facilitated and structured guidance as they prepare, SHRM offers preparation courses led by SHRM-certified instructors, who combine the SHRM Learning System with their teaching to facilitate a comprehensive and detailed review of the current SHRM BoCK. These expert instructors will help you to identify areas of strength—and build on them—as well as areas in which you need further concentrated study in preparation for either certification exam.

  • Led by highly experienced and engaging SHRM-certified instructors.
  • Classes are taught at a structured pace so you can absorb and understand the material.
  • Peer discussions and real-world experiences help reinforce learning materials.
  • Courses provide an opportunity to network with other HR professionals.
  • Outside-the-classroom assignments help reinforce sessions.
  • Sample test questions, preparation techniques and periodic progress checks keep you confident in your studies.
Ideal for those who prefer a structured learning environment.

SHRM-CP/SHRM-SCP credential-holders may earn up to 22 (in-person), 20.5 (7-week virtual) or 27.5 (9-week virtual) PDCs for recertification when attending a SHRM-CP/SHRM-SCP Seminar for professional development only.
