The SHRM CP/SCP Certification Tutorial Pathway

    June 16, 2015

    SHRM is proud of your achievements and recognizes the time, money and energy you have invested. As an organization committed to its members, SHRM will continue to support and recognize your expertise.

    Now your path to even greater opportunity is simple and clear. Your existing HR certification constitutes your eligibility to earn the SHRM-CP or SHRM-SCP which indicates to the global HR community that you have the competencies, knowledge and skills to perform effectively in today's ever-changing workplace.

    If you are a current holder of an HR generalist certification (including: PHR, SPHR, GPHR, HRBP, HRMP and IPMA-CP*) or obtained your certification by January 31, 2015, you are eligible for SHRM's new certification—at no cost—by completing the following three simple steps by December 31, 2015:

    • Document that your current certification is in good standing.
    • Sign the SHRM Code of Ethics.
    • Complete a brief online tutorial focusing on HR competencies.

    You will not lose or have to give up any of your current credentials in order to obtain the new SHRM Certification.  To create a profile and access the tutorial, click HERE.  Once you complete this process, you will earn the new SHRM credential and begin a three-year SHRM recertification cycle.
