Program Description:

Show The World Your HR Expertise with The California Law Specialty Credential.

If you practice HR or conduct business in California, you need complete competence in the complex legislation that applies. One way of demonstrating your California HR expertise is by earning your SHRM California Law HR Specialty Credential.

The SHRM California Law HR Specialty Credential course allows you to experience the full scope of dynamic and unique challenges human resource professionals face on a daily basis while leading workforces in California. Throughout the seminar you will engage in frequent practical exercises and collaborative discussions that are designed to hone the competencies needed to interpret and implement human resource practices in California.

You will gain the knowledge to develop employment guidelines that satisfy the intricate California labor code, minimize potential litigation risks, and meet the strategic objectives of your organization.

The SHRM California Law HR Specialty Credential program includes:

  • Enrollment in California HR: Applying CA Law to Employment Practices, a two-day classroom seminar
  • Four comprehensive SHRM eLearning courses
  • The online California knowledge assessment, distributed by SHRM.

After passing the assessment, add your Micro-Credential to your resume, e-mail signatures and social media profiles, proving your California expertise to your employer and your network.

Why should I attend?

We understand you may have other training options to obtain your SHRM California Law HR Specialty Credential but there are several differences that set CalSHRM apart:

CalSHRM has been licensed by SHRM to provide the California HR: Applying CA Law to Employment Practices training session as part of the Micro-credential obtainment. Unlike other trainers, we are delivering the sessions in conjunction with SHRM.

The instructor presenting California HR: Applying CA Law to Employment Practices is a SHRM certified instructor and is one of the California HR professionals who helped develop the credential curriculum.

The course has been revised for 2024 and includes many updates to new laws taking effect 1/1/2024.

Note: You do not have to be SHRM-certified to earn the SHRM California Law HR Specialty Credential; however, you will receive 26.5 PDCs towards your SHRM-CP or SHRM-SCP recertification upon completion of the Credential package.
