Becoming a certified human resources professional is a great accomplishment. In today’s environment you have several professional development options. Two of the most well-known organizations offering general human resources designations are the Human Resources Certification Institute (HRCI) and the Society for Human Resources Management (SHRM).

For more information about the PHR, PHR or SPHR visit www.hrci.org. Here you can review eligibility requirements, register for the exam, find the latest information about the upcoming test cycle and associated fees.

For more information about the SHRM-CP or SHRM-SCP visit www.shrmcertification.org. Here you can review eligibility requirements, register for the exam, find the latest information about the upcoming test cycle and associated fees.

Once you have decided which designation is best for you, next steps include determining a study plan. This spring Columbia SHRM is pleased to offer you a study group to help you prepare for your designation.  One of the benefits of being a Columbia SHRM member is that these study sessions are free!

If you have not yet joined Columbia SHRM, join today. (If your company would be more apt to pay $60 for training than a membership, we are happy to invoice you for the sessions.)

The HCRI Spring study group will begin April 26, 2017.  It will be held at Grow Financial Federal Credit Union located at 805 Hwy 378, Lexington, SC 29072 from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm.
