SHRM On Demand Brings Education, PDCs to You

Resources to meet your learning needs are available at your fingertips

A young woman wearing headphones is working on her laptop at home.

​Benjamin Franklin once said, "An investment in education always pays the best interest." Are you feeling the financial strain of attending conferences, factoring in fees, travel, housing, food, and time away from home or work? Are you desperately searching for a way to earn those much-needed professional development credits (PDCs) to recertify your SHRM-CP or SHRM-SCP before time runs out? Well, fear not, my fellow planners! I have the perfect solution for you. 

Introducing SHRM On Demand, a one-year subscription that will revolutionize your professional development journey. With unlimited access to a treasure trove of valuable educational programming, this program has got you covered. Multiple topics and program lengths allow you to make a solid investment in your future through education at your pace and according to your timeline. And guess what? SHRM-CP/SHRM-SCP certification holders can earn all 60 PDCs needed to recertify in the Advance Your Education category!

But don't just take my word for it. Let's hear what Nancy Woolever, vice president of certification at SHRM, has to say about this game-changing program: "SHRM's On Demand programs offer a wide range of topics that align perfectly with the competencies defined in the SHRM Body of Applied Skills and Knowledge®. I love exploring the library for niche topics that are hard to find elsewhere or complement my other learning endeavors. Whether I need a quick fix or a deep dive, this platform has got me covered. And even if I need to take a break midprogram, it seamlessly brings me back to where I left off."

Now, let's talk numbers. This is one very economical option for the judicious education program investor. For a mere $265 for a year of learning, you can gain access to SHRM's top conferences and events without leaving the comfort of your own home. Imagine attending the SHRM Annual Conference & Expo or the SHRM Employment Law & Compliance Conference from your couch! With self-paced virtual learning available 24/7, you can earn up to 60 PDCs at your own pace. And guess what—32 percent of SHRM-CP and 23 percent of SHRM-SCP certification holders are already reaping the benefits of this incredible subscription.

Here's Laurie McIntosh, a seasoned certified veteran in the field of HR! She has been a SHRM-certified professional since Nov. 19, 2014, making her one of the trailblazers to earn the SHRM-SCP. But that's not all—McIntosh has been rocking the HR world since 2008 with her impressive credentials.

"I have recertified multiple times," McIntosh shared. "As a lifelong learner, I find it incredibly achievable to meet and even exceed the requirement of earning 60 PDCs over three years. And let me tell you, using SHRM On Demand has been an absolute game changer. It's so easy to use and provides access to a wealth of knowledge and expertise covering all HR disciplines." 

Keep in mind that through the On Demand platform, you can earn more than 60 PDCs and carry forward up to 20 PDCs to your next recertification cycle.

Let's also hear from Vincent Caldwell, who held the SHRM-CP for a solid four years. "While I can't physically attend every session at events, with SHRM On Demand, I can access more sessions than any event can offer," Caldwell said. "It's like having a front-row seat to all the HR goodness!"
