Define Yourself as a HR Leader by Earning Your SHRM-CP or SHRM-SCP Certification

It’s Time to SET YOURSELF Apart

It is time to prove that you are prepared for the pivotal role a Human Resource (HR) leader plays in transforming the workplace. Unlike memorization-based certification credentials, Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) SHRM-Certified Professional (CP) and SHRM-Senior Certified Professional (SCP) measure a HR professional’s most critical skill: the ability to apply HR Principles to real-life situations. No other exam compares.
The SHRM Credentials are:
Universally Applicable         Built upon one comprehensive SHRM Body of Competency and Knowledge, SHRM certification is applicable across industries, geographic borders, job responsibilities and career levels.
Competency-Based            SHRM certification tests your ability to apply your knowledge on the job. After all, HR is not all facts and figures but rather how you effectively implement your knowledge in the workplace every day.
Focused on Advancement  More than 5,000 employers are seeking SHRM credential-holders every month. Boost your confidence to take that next step in your HR career, or to distinguish yourself in a job search.
Backed by SHRM                SHRM certification is the only HR certification offered by the world’s largest HR membership organization. As the industry leader in HR professional development, SHRM has supported more than 100,000 employers representing 140 million employees worldwide.

Course Description: The CVCC Workforce Solutions SHRM Credential Exam Prep Course is a virtual on-line course, which offers a weekly instructor-led course, which is interactive, comprehensive and effective.
