Why Enroll in Our SHRM Prep Course...

Offered in partnership with the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM), the curriculum provided in the SHRM Learning System is designed by global subject matter experts and covers the entire SHRM Body of Applied Skills and Knowledge™ (SHRM BASK™).

The SHRM-CP and SHRM-SCP certifications are built upon the SHRM BASK which is more than an exam outline. It defines the standards for knowledge, strategies and competencies required for effective HR professionals around the world. 

To maintain this level of excellence and relevancy, SHRM brought together some of the best minds in the HR profession to define eight behavioral competencies and 15 functional areas that every HR professional should know.
