Set Yourself Apart With SHRM Certification

In the ever-evolving human resources landscape, it can seem difficult to stand out and prove your value. However, by earning your SHRM Certified Professional (SHRM-CP®) or SHRM Senior Certified Professional (SHRM-SCP®), you can prove your knowledge, competency, and value to colleagues and to employers looking for a competitive edge in today’s global economy. 
Maximize your chances for success with SHRM Certification with Montgomery College’s The SHRM Learning System for SHRM-CP® and SHRM-SCP® Certification Preparation Course


Certifications and PDC / Open Enrollment Descriptions 

HR professionals like you are facing new and larger challenges each day due in part to a changing workforce, shifting legislation and regulations and so much more. Ensure you’re prepared for these changes, and anything else thrown your way with SHRM’s global HR credentials, SHRM-CP and SHRM-SCP.  
Unlike memorization-based certification credentials, SHRM certification measures an HR professional’s most critical skill: the ability to apply HR principles to real-life situations. No other exam compares. Depending upon a student’s degree, certification eligibility requirements range from 1 year in a HR role to 7 years in a HR role.
