Use SHRM methodology to award the appropriate number of PDCs for individual offerings. Credit is awarded based on the actual educational time spent in the program. A minimum of 1 educational hour is required for a continuing education activity to qualify for PDC credit. PDCs are calculated in 15-minute increments. Each 15-minute increment = .25, or a quarter, of one hour. Examples: 1-hour educational program = 1 PDC 1-hour and 15 minute concurrent conference session = 1.25 PDCs 3-hour e-learning course = 3 PDCs Enter into the online SHRM program database all¬†required information for each individual program offering. Programs must be entered before they occur. Retroactive programs cannot be entered. Include a process for determining attendee participation for passive-format programs (e.g., webinars, videoconferences, self-directed e-learning). Ensure that qualifying programs are at least one hour (e.g., 45-minute presentation with 15-minute Q&A period). Individual conference sessions or sessions at a one- or multi-day seminar must follow this same format to qualify. Adhere to SHRM Recertification Provider seal usage guidelines when using the SHRM Recertification Provider seal on any publications (refer to the¬†SHRM Recertification Provider Seal Guide¬†for seal usage details), and add one of the following statements: FULL STATEMENT: ‚Äú[Organization Name] is recognized by SHRM to offer SHRM-CP or SHRM-SCP professional development credits (PDCs). This program is valid for [XX] PDCs. For more information about certification or recertification, please visit shrmcertification.org.‚ÄĚ ABBREVIATED STATEMENT: ‚ÄúThis program is valid for [XX] PDCs toward SHRM-CP and SHRM-SCP recertification.‚ÄĚ Provide program participants with verification of attendance (e.g., certificate of completion, e-mail notification, materials distributed onsite) that also shows the number of PDCs assigned to the educational activity and the date(s) attended. Comply with any verification requests conducted by SHRM and retain program documentation for a minimum of three years. (see Compliance & Verification below) Contact SHRM if person responsible for entering program information into the SHRM database changes. Retain attendance verification information for a 3-year period. ¬† Fees $500 for two years. (Includes $100 nonrefundable application processing fee.)

  Renewal A reminder e-mail notification will be sent to a SHRM Recertification Provider approximately 90 days prior to the end of the 2-year SHRM Recertification Provider status period. The provider must submit its renewal application and appropriate fees before the end of the period.

  Compliance & Verification SHRM has a responsibility to maintain and protect the integrity of the SHRM Recertification Provider Program and the quality of educational offerings of SHRM Recertification Providers. Therefore, SHRM reserves the right to: Award SHRM Recertification Provider status only if all qualifications are met. Monitor program submissions as part of the SHRM verification process. Regularly select a random percentage of SHRM Recertification Providers for verification. Monitor proper use of the SHRM Recertification Provider seal. Request supporting documentation for specific programs from a SHRM Recertification Provider chosen for verification. Examples include: Course Details SHRM BoCK Alignment Presenter’s Biography Educational Hours = PDCs awarded Course Evaluation Terminate SHRM Recertification Provider status if there is evidence of the provider's failure to uphold SHRM education criteria or comply with program guidelines (see Denial & Termination below).   Denial & Termination SHRM aims to work with each SHRM Recertification Provider applicant to ensure a smooth application process. In the event a provider applicant is denied SHRM Recertification Provider status, an appeal of the decision may be made within 30 days. If the denial is upheld at the end of the appeals process, the applicant must wait one year from the original date of submission to reapply. SHRM’s goal is to help rectify any application issues. In the event a SHRM Recertification Provider applicant is not in compliance with program standards or procedures and is denied SHRM Recertification Provider status, it will be notified by SHRM staff. The provider will have 30 days within which to comply with any conditions identified and to provide verification of corrective action taken. Failure to comply by the end of the 30-day probationary period may result in suspension or revocation of SHRM Recertification Provider status.

The¬†SHRM Body of Competency and Knowledge¬†(SHRM BoCK‚ĄĘ)¬†is the basis for the SHRM credentials. The SHRM BoCK describes¬†the behavioral competencies and HR knowledge which HR professionals need for effective job performance. The SHRM¬†BoCK organizes eight behavioral competencies into three clusters: Leadership (Leadership & Navigation,¬†Ethical Practice), Interpersonal (Relationship Management,¬†Communication,¬†Global & Cultural Effectiveness), and Business (Business Acumen,¬†Consultation,¬†Critical Evaluation). Additionally, the SHRM BoCK organizes 15 areas of HR knowledge which comprise the technical¬†competency HR Expertise into three domains: People (HR Strategic Planning, Talent Acquisition, Employee Engagement &¬†Retention, Learning & Development, Total Rewards), Organization (Structure of the HR Function, Organizational Effectiveness &¬†Development, Workforce Management, Employee & Labor Relations, Technology Management), and Workplace (HR in the Global¬†Context, Diversity & Inclusion, Risk Management, Corporate Social Responsibility, U.S. Employment Law & Regulations*).

DESCRIPTIONS OF EXAMS The SHRM-CP and SHRM-SCP exams contain two types of multiple choice questions: stand-alone knowledge-based items that assess a candidate’s knowledge and understanding of factual information, and scenario-based situational judgment items that assess a candidate’s judgment, application and decision-making skills. 

Knowledge Items There are two categories of stand-alone knowledge-based items on the SHRM-CP and SHRM-SCP exams. Items in the first category, referred to as HR-specific knowledge Items (KIs), cover key concept topics associated with the 15 HR functional areas, while items in the second category, referred to as foundational knowledge items (FKIs), cover key concept topics considered foundational to the eight behavioral competencies. Examinees receive credit for selecting the correct answer to a given question; otherwise, no credit is awarded. Situational Judgment Items Situational judgment items (SJIs) assess candidates’ judgment and decision-making skills, which are not easily measured using traditional knowledge-based questions. Examinees are presented with realistic work-related scenarios and asked to choose the best of several possible strategies to resolve or address the issues described in each scenario. Although more than one strategy may be effective for addressing actual work-related scenarios, examinees only receive credit for choosing the best possible answer, as determined by a panel of experienced HR professionals. All other answers, which reflect either less effective or ineffective strategies, receive no credit.  Field-Test Questions Each exam contains 30 field-test items which are not counted as part of a candidate’s score. Field testing allows us to gather data on a question’s effectiveness before it is included on future exams as a scored item. Examinees’ answers to field-test items do not count toward any part of their exam scores, and are only used for item development purposes. The field test items on the SHRM-CP and SHRM-SCP exams are randomly mixed with scored exam items so that candidates will not be able to distinguish them from scored items. ACRONYM LIST Download a list of common HR-related acronyms which may appear on the exam. EXAM DURATION & FORMAT Both exams will contain Knowledge- and Competency-based questions: The exams are delivered by computer, and candidates for both exams have 4 hours to answer a total of 160 multiple choice questions, of which approximately 60 percent are stand-alone knowledge-based questions and approximately 40 percent are scenario-based situational judgment items.

Breakdown of Testing-Time: Candidate Confirmation Details: 2 minutes Introduction and Tutorial: 8 minutes Exam: 4 hours (240 minutes) Survey: 5 minutes Each section shows a countdown timer on the screen, and each section is separate and time-independent. Minutes do not roll-over. For instance, if a candidate spends less time in the introduction, extra minutes are not rolled-over to the exam portion. DISTRIBUTION OF ITEMS BY CONTENT AND ITEM TYPE  The distribution of items with respect to content and item type is essentially the same for both the SHRM-CP and SHRM-SCP exams. As shown below, approximately half of the items on each exam are allocated across the three behavioral competency clusters, and the other half are allocated across the three HR knowledge domains. The table below indicates that approximately 40 percent of the items on each exam are situational judgment items, with the remainder being stand-alone items measuring either knowledge that is foundational to the behavioral competencies (10%) or HR-specific knowledge (50%). BEHAVIORAL COMPETENCY CLUSTERS ITEM TYPE   Leadership (13%) Situational Judgment (40%) Foundational Knowledge (10%)

  Business (18.5%)    Interpersonal (18.5%) HR KNOWLEDGE DOMAINS ITEM TYPE   People (17%) HR-Specific Knowledge (50%)

  Organization (17%)    Workplace (16%)
