SHRM Certification Prep

The SHRM certification recognizes that HR professionals are at the core of leading organizational success. It is built upon one singular body of knowledge designed to elevate the HR profession around the world.

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. It ensures that the HR professional possesses the relevant HR knowledge required for today’s workplace, but it goes one step further. The SHRM certification tests the HR professional’s competencies – the ability to put knowledge to work through critical thinking and application.    

As an official SHRM Education Partner, our certification prep session utilizes the 2021 SHRM Learning System, giving you access to the most comprehensive, effective, and up-to-date exam preparation tools available. You will learn from a certified instructor who provides expertise, insights and one-on-one guidance; network, share experiences, and discuss topics with a diverse group of HR professionals; and stay on track to earn your certification with a structured learning experience.

CBU is proud to be an official SHRM partner.
