SHRM offers two premier certifications, the SHRM Certified Professional (SHRM-CP) and SHRM Senior Certified Professional (SHRM-SCP).

  • The SHRM-CP is right for you if you’re new to HR or have zero to two years of experience, and your HR responsibilities are tactical in nature. This certification assesses your HR competencies and skills at an operational level. The SHRM-CP does not require you to currently be in an HR job or have an HR job title, but it is recommended to have a working knowledge of HR principles prior to testing.
  • The SHRM-SCP is the best fit if you’ve been in a strategic-level position for at least three years, or have held the SHRM-CP for at least three years are have actively been developing into a strategic-level role. The SHRM-SCP certification validates your skills at a strategic level, including duties such as developing HR policies, overseeing the entire, integrated HR enterprise or leading the alignment of HR strategies within your organization. This certification requires applicants to dedicate at least 1,000 hours per year to strategic level HR-related work.
