Because the HR profession is constantly changing and evolving, it is important for certified professionals to continually update their HR competencies and knowledge.
SHRM-CP or SHRM-SCP certification demonstrates your commitment to the profession, to your organization, and to yourself through lifelong education and professional development.
HR professionals obtain recertification by engaging in professional development activities that relate to the Behavior Competencies and Functional Areas identified in the SHRM BoCK. The incorporation of competencies into the SHRM Bock greatly expands the range of activities that will qualify for professional development credits.
SHRM has addressed the needs of HR professionals by creating three avenues by which SHRM-CP and SHRM-SCP credential-holders earn credits.
Both instructor-led and self-paced continuing education activities consistent with the SHRM BoCK qualify for recertification credits.
Activities within your workplace that contribute to the continued success of your organization and to your growth as a professional.
Activities that contribute to the continued development of the HR profession including presentations, teaching, conducting and volunteering at nonprofit organizations.
