SHRM Certification Overview
The SHRM® Learning System is an instructor-led program that offers experienced human resources professionals an opportunity to review the components of a complete human resources program.
Though the majority of human resources certification participants enroll in this program to prepare for taking the SPHR® and PHR® certification examinations it is not a prerequisite, nor is it a prep course for the exam. Rather, it is a review of the body of knowledge which many individuals use in studying for the exam. Others may desire to take the program simply to enhance their level of professionalism in the human resource function.
The certification offered by HRCI is intended for professionals currently working in the human resource field. At least 51% of a professional's daily activities must be within the human resource function. Participation in this course does not guarantee successful HRCI test results. 4.0 CEUs are awarded by CBU in cooperation with SHRM®.
The actual dates are determined to coincide with the SPHR® certification and PHR® certification exams dates.
Detailed information about the professional human resources certification testing process is available from the society's HR Certification Institute at http://www.hrci.org.
