SHRM Foundation DVD Series


Through interviews with top executives, these educational DVDs present real-world case studies of strategic HR in action. These videos are ideal for use in SHRM chapter programs. Use the companion discussion guides and PowerPoint presentations to create high-impact presentations for professional development or classroom use. SHRM Foundation DVDs are used in more than 400 universities in 43 countries.

When used as part of a 1-hour educational session with the companion materials, these DVDs will be approved for one hour of Professional Development Credit (PDC) towards SHRM Certification, or HRCI certification credit as noted below. SHRM Chapters and other organizations should apply for their own program ID when using the DVDs.

Recertification Credit
The majority of DVD's are eligible for one hour of HR recertification credit. To receive credit, they must be viewed as part of a 1-hour educational program using the companion discussion guide and PowerPoint presentation. (Watching the DVDs on your own does NOT qualify for credit.) The type of HRCI credit that will be awarded is noted after each title. For SHRM certification, each will count for one hour of PDC. 

In order for your SHRM chapter to earn professional development or recertification credit for using these programs, you must submit the event through your respective certification provider account.


  1. When submitting a SHRM Foundation DVD and your own chapter event, be sure to mention that you are using a SHRM Foundation DVD that has been pre-approved for credit (the Foundation does not provide the program ID).
  2. Submit your chapter event at least 4 weeks prior to the start date, to allow ample time for review.
  3. Once your event is approved, you will receive your own unique program ID number – which is valid during the calendar year you submitted it for approval.
