Because the HR profession is constantly changing and evolving, it is important for certified
professionals to continually update their HR competencies and knowledge. Achieving
certification as a SHRM Certified Professional (SHRM-CP®) or SHRM Senior Certified
Professional (SHRM-SCP®) is the first step. Recertifying demonstrates your commitment to the
profession, to your organization and to yourself through lifelong education and professional
HR professionals may maintain their SHRM-CP or SHRM-SCP credential by engaging in professional development activities that relate to the behavioral competencies and HR knowledge identified in the SHRM Body of Competency and Knowledge™. SHRM created three avenues by which SHRM-CP and SHRM-SCP credential holders can earn PDCs: Advance Your Education, Advance Your Organization, and Advance Your Profession.
Big Bend SHRM offers SHRM recertification credits through it's monthly chapter meetings, and the annual HR Tallahassee ConferenceFor more information on how to recertify, refer to the SHRM Recertification Handbook.
