HR Certification

Earn the SHRM Certified Professional (SHRM-CP®) or SHRM Senior Certified Professional (SHRM-SCP®) and prove your knowledge, competency and value to colleagues and to employers looking for a competitive edge in today’s global economy.

Big Bend SHRM offers a SHRM Learning System study group for individuals looking to expand their HR knowledge and competencies to prepare for the SHRM certification exams.

Set Yourself Apart with SHRM-CP and SHRM-SCP Certification

Certification not only prepares you for the challenges ahead, but also sets you on a path for further success. By earning your SHRM Certified Professional (SHRM-CP®) or SHRM Senior Certified Professional (SHRM-SCP®) credential, you demonstrate that you’re invested in your career and ready to lead.

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.

Prove your HR knowledge—and how you can apply that knowledge on the job. Gain a platform to show you’re ready to take on the next challenge.
