New SHRM Book Club for Recertification Credits!
HRCI/SHRMStore Recertification Credit Program

Dorothy Knapp, SPHR  2/4/2013
Have you been looking for a new way to gain recertification credits in the comfort of your own home, on an airplane or while waiting for your number to come up in a queue? Spend your time reading! The SHRMStore and HRCI have partnered to provide relevant HR books as a way to further your development and gain recertification credits!

To get a list of the books, go to the SHRM Store website (look at the very top of the SHRM homepage for the link to the Store) and then click on HR Certification Institute. Click on the link to Book Club. Or, for direct access now, click here.   

There you will see books that have been pre-approved for recertification.

When you buy the book from the SHRMStore, you will receive a code to take a quiz. After you have read the book, you will log onto the SHRM e-Learning site and establish an account. Locate the book you have read and take the test. The book and the test will indicate what kind of credit you will receive. If you receive a 70+ passing grade, you will receive a Program ID that you will log into your HRCI account for credit.

If you have not purchased the book from the SHRMStore, you can still get credit!  Starting in April of 2013, you will be able to purchase the quiz from the elearning section of the SHRM website, set up an account and take the test.

To learn more about this exciting new program, check out the FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions) in the Certification Core Leadership Area Page of the VLRC. If your question is not answered there, contact the SHRMStore at  for more help.
