Certification

    Earning your SHRM-CP or SHRM-SCP credential makes you a recognized expert and leader in the HR field.  The first step in the certification process is to determine eligibility and which exam is appropriate for you at www.shrm.org/certification.

    The next step is very important – choose how to prepare for the exam. 

    The SHRM Learning System is available through self-study or instructor-led programs, and your local chapter may offer a study group opportunity.

    SHRM has also partnered with colleges and universities worldwide to offer the SHRM Learning System in a traditional classroom setting or online format.  For easy reference, below is a list of colleges and universities in Kentucky offering a prep course using the SHRM Learning System.
