The instructor-led learning option is ideal for those who prefer a structured environment with a live, SHRM-certified instructor. Classroom, virtual or hybrid options are offered throughout the year and each option includes the SHRM Learning System, the official SHRM cert prep tool. The curriculum is based on the
SHRM Body of Competency and Knowledge (SHRM BoCK), reinforced by the SHRM Learning System, and delivered in an interactive learning environment.
COVID-19 Impact: Currently, it’s not advisable to hold gatherings of groups for study purposes, but that doesn’t mean you can’t prepare for the SHRM-CP or SHRM-SCP virtually with guidance from a SHRM-certified instructor. Select a virtual course option from SHRM or an Approved Partner below and you’ll benefit from live instruction and virtual peers – so you can prepare with confidence – from home.
SHRM Cert Prep courses are offered directly from SHRM in cities across the US. Virtual options are accessible worldwide.
Virtual: Ask questions to a live-instructor in real time and connect with classmates.

NEW! SHRM’s Power Prep
Power Prep is a condensed, 1-day in-person or 3-week virtual course that focuses on test-taking skills. Power Prep is ideal for individuals who already possess a strong knowledge of the SHRM BoCK and are looking for guidance on the exam rather than the content.
In-Person SHRM Certification Preparation Course COVID-19 Statement
With numerous in-person SHRM Certification Preparation Programs several months away, we remain hopeful to hold these programs as planned. Should these scheduled programs move forward, we will ensure the fullest precautions are taken to protect the well-being of our attendees, working closely with public health officials, the venue and our staff. We will continue to monitor this situation daily and will make future adjustments as the situation warrants, notifying attendees promptly of any change.
