Our SHRM-CP/SHRM-SCP preparation seminars, combined with the SHRM Learning System, present a comprehensive and detailed review of the current SHRM BoCK. When you attend a course, an expert, SHRM-certified instructor will guide you in identifying and building on areas of strength. You will also see where you need further concentrated study in preparation for either certification exam.

To gain the greatest benefits from the seminar, begin your SHRM Learning System at-home studies before the course begins. While these seminars should not be considered your only preparation for the certification exam, they serve as a very valuable component to help you focus your study efforts and maximize your results.

  • Seminars are led by highly experienced and engaging SHRM-certified instructors.
  • Classroom environment provides interactive discussions with peers, offering real-world examples.
  • Outside-the-classroom assignments help reinforce seminar sessions.
  • Sample test questions and periodic progress checks keep you confident in your knowledge.
  • Virtual seminars allow real-time Q&As and chats between participants, providing a dynamic virtual classroom experience.
  • All virtual classes are recorded in their entirety for viewing at your convenience.
  • New SHRM exclusive! Invitation to virtual group coaching session with a SHRM-certified instructor
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.
