SHRM-CP and SHRM- SCP Certification Prep

In the summer of 2014, SHRM discontinued its long standing relationship with the Human Resources Certification Institute, HRCI. Moving forward, SHRM and HRCI will endorse separate certification programs. SHRM will offer the following certification designations: the SHRM-CP and the SHRM-SCP. CP indicates "Certified Professional" and SCP indicates "Senior Certified Professional." Washington University will continue to offer the SHRM Learning System course in partnership with the Society for Human Resource Management.

Program Objectives

The majority of participants enroll in this program to prepare for taking the SHRM-CP and SHRM-SCP examinations. The highly interactive instructional methodology provides a rich but scheduled review of the content areas assessed in these tests. Other participants take the program to enhance their level of professionalism in field of human resource management.

SHRM Schedule

The class meets on the Danforth Campus of Washington University. The sessions start at 8:30 a.m. and conclude by 3 p.m. A campus map will be provided with the course materials.
