Modernized SHRM Certification Website Goes Live

​The SHRM Certification Team is pleased to announce the launch of a more user-friendly website for all things certification,

With a fresh look, simpler navigation and easier access to information, the updated site is designed to be everyone's first stop for learning about the SHRM certification process and related products and services, as well as for applying for the SHRM-CP or SHRM-SCP exam.

Regardless of where users are in their certification journey—just considering becoming certified, preparing to take the test or exploring recertification options once they've earned their credential—the interactive site allows for easy browsing through comprehensive content. Improved navigation means that aspiring, new and current SHRM credential-holders can access useful information about all the helpful resources available to them.

One-Stop Shop for Certification Information

Specific pages within the updated website provide details on certification levels, exam preparation, academic alignment, military service member resources, corporate and global opportunities, recertification requirements, and recertification providers.

The page on exam preparation, in particular, has been expanded to meet people's needs. In addition to information on the SHRM Learning System, there are supplemental resources to support candidates' study efforts. These include the official guidebook, Ace Your SHRM Certification Exam, and its accompanying workbooks featuring practice questions for both the SHRM-CP and SHRM-SCP exams, plus webinars, virtual learning sessions and study options available in various modalities.

Special Community Interests

For SHRM faculty members, the modernized website offers open access to SHRM's semesterlong courses and case studies focusing on curriculum content in such areas as compensation and benefits, employment law, training and development, strategy, and labor relations.

For organizations, the improved site explains how to take advantage of corporate rates on SHRM certification exam fees and how to partner with SHRM as an approved recertification provider.

For current SHRM-certified professionals, the website will be constantly updated with important announcements, helpful articles, blogs and newsletters. Video testimonials and other certification success stories highlight the real-life experiences of others who have sought, earned and are maintaining their SHRM credentials.
