The Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) is an international organization made up of human resource employees. Besides membership, SHRM offers a certification program wherein HR professionals can verify their expertise. An SHRM certification demonstrates to the business community that a credential holder has strong capabilities in both aspects of HR practice – knowledge and competency – that are required for effective job performance.
The SHRM offers two types of certification: SHRM-CP and SHRM-SCP. You should base your choice on which area of HR you specialize in. The SHRM-CP is for people in operational positions focused on tasks like policy implementation and day to day management. Meanwhile, the SHRM-SCP is for people who hold a senior position that focuses on strategic tasks like data analysis and policy creation.
Both exams have 160 questions and a 4-hour time limit. There are two types of multiple-choice questions: knowledge-based items that assess knowledge and understanding of factual information, and situational judgment items that assess judgment, application, and decision-making skills. Content distribution is essentially the same for both exams. Behavioral Competency Clusters comprise 50% of questions (leadership, business, and interpersonal), while the other half consists of HR Knowledge Domains (people, organization, and workplace).
Though you've learned a lot through your degree program at a school like the University of New Mexico or Central New Mexico Community College and may already have on-the-job experience, you may see questions in the SHRM certification exam that you may not be familiar with. In your Albuquerque SHRM certification class, you'll be led by an instructor who is very knowledgeable with the concepts and format of the exam.
You'll attend sessions with other HR professionals who have the same goal as you. The instructor can provide exercises and lectures to prepare you for the range of scenarios the exam may present to you. Reviewing under the guidance of an expert instructor alongside other HR professionals can help keep you engaged as well as inspire active participation in class discussions. Peer discussions and real-world experiences can also help reinforce learning materials. If you need extra help with any topic, you can ask for one-on-one time with your instructor.
