SHRM Flyer: Top 5 Ways Your Organization Will Benefit From Your SHRM-CPSM or SHRM-SCPSM Certification

HRCI Certification
HRCI is an independent, internationally recognized certifying body for the HR profession. HRCI certifications require professionals to demonstrate their expertise in the core principles of HR practice and the application of those principles.

HRCI grants accreditation to HR management professionals who pass a comprehensive examination to demonstrate mastery of the HR field in areas which range from technical operational knowledge to comprehension of contemporary management concepts and practices.

Visit the HRCI website here​​​​​​​.

The OSHRM chapter encourages all its members to seek professional certification. Certification opportunities are available through the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) and through the Human Resources Certification Institute (HRCI). 

SHRM Certification
The national Society for Human Resource Management offers HR certification for HR professionals. Two levels of certification available are the SHRM Certified Professional (SHRM-CP) and the SHRM Senior Certified Professional (SHRM-SCP). These certifications bridge competencies and knowledge to deliver and test the skills necessary to succeed.

For more information, please see their flyer below on the benefits of SHRM certification to your organization or visit the SHRM website about certification​​​​​​​.

In addition, SHRM has created a LinkedIn group for SHRM-CP and SHRM-SCP certification here​​​​​​​

To retain the HRCI or SHRM certifications, certificants are required to recertify every three years. Recertification demonstrates your continued dedication to stay up to date with the rapidly changing HR profession.
