Testing Locations

The SHRM-CP and SHRM-SCP certification exams are delivered at authorized testing centers or through a remote proctoring process administered by Prometric.

Once you have received your Authorization to Test (ATT) letter, schedule your exam appointment right away to obtain your preferred test date, time and location. Schedule your appointment online at prometric.com/shrm.

International candidates should identify their testing center by accessing Appendix C: Regional Testing Contact Centers in the SHRM Certification Handbook and using the contact information available for the preferred testing center.

Remote Proctoring is currently unavailable in China, Nigeria and Ethiopia.  

When scheduling your appointment, you are required to provide the following information:

  • Full name exactly as it appears on your ATT letter, which should match the unexpired, government issued ID you will use as proof of identity at the testing center. Note: Please ensure that your ID is an exact match to your legal name.
  • The Eligibility ID number as listed at the top of the ATT letter.
  • A daytime phone number.
  • Exam sponsor (SHRM).
  • The exam for which registration is requested (SHRM-CP or SHRM-SCP).


Get to know the remote testing platform and learn what to expect on exam day.



Candidates will receive an e-mail confirming their exam appointment and confirmation number. The confirmation number is different from the Eligibility ID number and will be required to confirm, reschedule or cancel an exam appointment. It is the responsibility of the candidate to confirm the correct date and time of the scheduled exam appointment. SHRM will not be able to reschedule missed appointments.

It is best to register for your exam appointment as early as possible so that your preferred time and location will be available. Candidates who schedule their appointments after the exam window has opened might not be able to obtain their preferred times or locations. If a candidate is unable to schedule an exam appointment, all fees will be forfeited.

Locate the nearest testing location, by viewing the Prometric website at prometric.com/shrm. Please note exam locations may be subject to change. Please check directly with Prometric to ensure the most up-to-date location information.
