+ View more dates & times
  • Overview

    We now live and work in a global economy, in which geographic borders are virtually non-existent, and innovation, agility and strategy are critical success factors. The HR profession operates at the core of this global economy, ensuring the alignment of organizational strategy with a high-performing workforce. The new SHRM credentials, SHRM Certified Professional (SHRM-CP™) and SHRM Senior Certified Professional (SHRM-SCP™), address these new roles.

    As the leading advocate for HR professionals worldwide, providing HR research and education, SHRM launched an unparalleled study to define not only the knowledge, but also the competencies required of today’s HR leaders. The result of this rigorous research was the SHRM Competency Model which forms an important foundation for the new SHRM Certification.  This course utilizes The SHRM Learning System, which is intended to cover the SHRM Body of Competency and Knowledge (SHRM BoCK™) tested in the SHRM-CP and SHRM-SCP certification exams. The system features up-to-date study materials and the latest technology, including SmartStudy tools, learning modules in print or e-reader formats, and extensive multi-media online resources accessible via mobile devices. Access to the Web-based software is valid for 18 months. It should be noted that this course requires extensive reading outside of the classroom environment.

    The new SHRM Certification recognizes that HR professionals are at the core of leading organizational success:

    • It is built on one singular SHRM Body of Competency and Knowledge™ (SHRM BoCK™) designed to elevate the HR profession around the world.
    • It tests the HR professional’s competency—the ability to put that knowledge to work through critical thinking and application.
    • It demonstrates that the HR professional is a technical expert and has mastered the application of HR technical and behavioral competencies, through practice and experience, to drive business results.

    Tuition includes the current edition of the SHRM Learning System, access to the SHRM Online Learning Portal, and a one year audit privilege.
