SHRM Certification
Share |
The SHRM-CP/SHRM-SCP certification preparation course is designed primarily for individuals seeking credentials that focus on identifying and testing the knowledge and practical real-life experiences HR professionals around the world need to excel in their careers today.

Earning your SHRM Certified Professional (SHRM-CP) or SHRM Senior Certified Professional (SHRM-SCP) credential establishes you as a recognized expert in the HR field. These new certifications recognize that HR professionals are at the core of leading organizational success:


  • Built on one singular Body of Competency and Knowledge (SHRM BoCKā„¢) designed to elevate the HR profession around the world.
  • Tests the HR professional's competency-the ability to put that knowledge to work through critical thinking and application.
  • 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.
There's no one right way to prepare for your exam. Each person is different. Only you know what best works for you. Some people enjoy learning with co-workers in study groups during the workweek. Others prefer to study independently using both the SHRM Learning System and other study aids available at booksellers across the country. Still other exam candidates find the support and structure provided by a university-based training program to be the best option for them.

New York City SHRM has several partner universities in the New York City area that provide weekly classes to help people like you prepare for the certification exam. You can explore each of these partner schools and their offerings below.



Once you pass your certification exam congratulations are in order! Your hours of hard work have paid off. Now that you've earned your certification, you don't want to lose it.


The certification preparation program covers four knowledge domains: People, Organization, Workplace and Strategy as well as eight behavioral competencies; Leadership & Navigation, Ethical Practice, Business Acumen, Relationship Management, Consultation, Critical Evaluation , Global & Cultural Effectiveness, and Communication.

For those not seeking certification, the course provides a comprehensive and accelerated option for professional development. Participants gain a generalist point of view, refresh key ideas and concepts, strengthen their understanding of core competencies and increase productivity.

The SHRM Learning System features relevant HR content and advanced tools that streamline study time, accelerate learning and build confidence for passing the SHRM-CP/SHRM-SCP exam. The course investment includes all course materials but does not cover registration for the SHRM-CP or SHRM-SCP examinations.
