SHRM Certification Pathway Window is Closing


With October right around the corner, we want to ensure all professionals holding a generalist HR credential successfully complete the Online Pathway to obtain their SHRM- SCP or SHRM-CP. The opportunity goes away December 31, 2015. 

If you’re not SHRM-certified, but have a valid HR generalist certification (including: PHR, SPHR, GPHR, HRBP, HRMP, IPMA-CP) which you obtained by January 31, 2015, you are eligible for SHRM's new certification—at no cost—by completing the Online Tutorial Pathway before December 31, 2015.

Please note that you must complete the pathway before attending the WISHRM annual conference in Wisconsin Dells to earn any recertification credits for this conference.  Visit to start this process, or e-mail for more information.

Have you achieved your SHRM-SCP or SHRM-CP competencies-based certification and are seeking recertification credits?  If so, there is no better place to collect SHRM Professional Development Credits (PDCs) than at our WISHRM annual conference.

Applications are now being accepted for the SHRM-CP/SHRM-SCP exam winter window. Apply today and join the group of HR professionals ready to prove not only what they know -- but what they can do with that knowledge.
