Next Generation SHRM Certification Coming Soon!
During the fall of 2014 we will continue to support certification preparation courses for PHR/SPHR designations. If you earn these credentials, you will also be eligible to add the new SHRM certification to your list of credentials free of charge from January 1 to December 31, 2015. Earning an HR credential is a sign of commitment and dedication to the HR profession.

Beginning in 2015 we are excited to be able to offer preparation for the new SHRM certification supported with the SHRM Learning System, a proven program designed to help HR professionals earn their HR credentials.

Ready to get certified?
If you are ready to earn your HR certification, we encourage you to look into our fall course offering with the ability to obtain the new designation at no cost in 2015.

Already certified?
You will not lose or have to give up any of your current credentials in order to obtain the new SHRM certification.
Beginning January 1, 2015, HR professionals with existing  certifications (PHR,SPHR) that are in good standing will be eligible for SHRM's new certification — at no cost — by completing the following by December 31, 2015:

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

The online tutorial will focus on HR competencies and will take less than one hour to complete. Once you go through this process, you may add the new SHRM credential to your current list of credentials and will begin a three-year recertification cycle.
