Led by qualified and certified HR instructors, our intensive SHRM-CP/SHRM-SCP preparation seminars, combined with the SHRM Learning System, present a comprehensive and detailed review of the current SHRM Body of Competency & Knowledge™ (SHRM BoCK™). By attending, you will be able to identify areas of strength and build on them. You will also see where you need further concentrated study in preparation for either exam.

After registering for your seminar, you will receive the 2017 SHRM Learning System to begin your exam preparation. To gain the greatest benefits from your seminar, utilize your SHRM Learning System before the seminar begins. During your seminar, your SHRM-certified instructor will build upon the foundation you've already established through your studies, guiding you through interactive discussions, sample test questions, and periodic progress checks.

While these seminars should not be considered your only preparation for certification, they serve as a very valuable component to help you focus your study efforts and maximize your results.

  • Led by qualified and certified instructors.
  • Classroom environment provides networking opportunities.
  • Outside-the-classroom assignments help reinforce seminar sessions.
  • Sample test questions and periodic progress checks keep you confident in your breadth of knowledge.
  • The virtual seminar delivery option allows realtime Q&As and chats between virtual seminar participants, providing a dynamic virtual classroom experience. All virtual classes are recorded in their entirety for viewing at your convenience.
Ideal for those who prefer a structured learning environment.
