Recertification Timeline and Fees

As a certified SHRM-CP or SHRM-SCP, you must submit your PDCs or retake the SHRM-CP or SHRM-SCP certification exam throughout your 3-year recertification period ending on the last day of your birth month. Once your recertification request has been approved, your next 3-year recertification period will begin from your existing end date.

If you complete your recertification cycle early, your end date will not change, but any unused or subsequent professional development activities completed within your current certification period cannot be carried over to the next.

Example:
›› Initial certification period: May 2016 (took exam)–July 2019 (birth month)
›› Recertified: December 2018
›› Next 3-year recertification period: July 2019–July 2022

Recertification Application Fee
SHRM Members = $100 USD
Nonmembers = $150 USD

The recertification fee is non-refundable, whether or not your application is approved.
