Who is This Course For?

Our SHRM Certificate Exam Prep course is designed primarily for individuals seeking SHRM-CP or SHRM-SCP certification. Certification is a great choice for HR professionals who want to:

  • Increase their knowledge
  • Advance their skills
  • Earn recognition from the global community


Earning the SHRM-CP or SHRM-SCP is one of the best ways to advance your career as a human resources professional. Becoming a SHRM-Certified Professional (SHRM-CP®) demonstrates mastery of the technical and operational aspects of HR practices and U.S. laws and regulations. This credential is for the HR professional who focuses on program implementation, has a tactical/logistical orientation, is accountable to another HR professional within the organization and has responsibilities that focus on the HR department rather than the whole organization.

While anyone may register for our exam prep course, there are some requirements to qualify for the SHRM-CP and SHRM-SCP Exams. You can view the full requirements on the SHRM Certification website.
