Educational Programs

For those looking for facilitated and structured guidance as they prepare, SHRM offers preparation courses led by SHRM-certified instructors, who combine the SHRM Learning System with their teaching to facilitate a comprehensive and detailed review of the current SHRM BoCK. These expert instructors will help you to identify areas of strength—and build on them—as well as areas in which you need further concentrated study in preparation for either certification exam.

These programs are offered in a number of delivery styles, locations and lengths. From 7-week virtual to 1-day in-person, we have something for every lifestyle and schedule. Explore them all below to find your best fit.

NEW Power Prep Programs are tailored to your exam level, prepare for your SHRM-CP or SHRM-SCP at a one-day interactive course. Implement strategies that help reinforce learning and memory, and apply practical test-taking tips for passing challenging multiple-choice exams.


BENEFITS
  • Led by highly experienced and engaging SHRM-certified instructors.
  • Classes are taught at a structured pace so you can absorb and understand the material.
  • Peer discussions and real-world experiences help reinforce learning materials.
  • Courses provide an opportunity to network with other HR professionals.
  • Outside-the-classroom assignments help reinforce sessions.
  • Sample test questions, preparation techniques and periodic progress checks keep you confident in your studies.
Ideal for those who prefer a structured learning environment.

“I found a lot of value in using the SHRM Learning System with a SHRM virtual seminar for seven weeks. It was an efficient way to prepare for my certification exam with many practice tests, tools and an instructor available to answer any questions I had during the course of study. I have already referred this system to two other people and will continue to do so.” 

– Anita Peterson, SHRM-SCP
