Certification

Congratulations Columbia SHRM! 

We are pleased to inform you that the Columbia SHRM chapter is being awarded 2016 SHRM Learning System Champion status. Click here to learn more about this prestigious program


 

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

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 to make the commitment to become SHRM certified, your next steps include determining a study plan. Columbia SHRM is pleased to offer you a study group to help you prepare for your designation exam.  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 $125 for training than a membership, we are happy to invoice you for the sessions.) 

Columbia SHRM offers two study group sessions per year.  To register, go to the Meetings tab at the top of the home page and scroll down for information on the next session.  Study group sessions are held Wednesday evenings from 6:00pm -8:00pm and are delivered virtually by other Columbia SHRM-certified members.

Please contact Brennen Gerards, Certification Chair, at Brennen.Gerards@bcbssc.com if you are interested in participating in a Study Group and/or have questions.
