If you're interested in pursuing the Certified Professional credential from the Society for Human Resource Management (or the SHRM-CP), Varsity Tutors can help you get clarity on your SHRM-CP test prep with SHRM-CP prep with a dedicated tutor. Working with a tutor in a 1:1 capacity means you'll have more time to explore topics that you may struggle with, and you don't have to feel like you're holding a group back or left to try and understand material on your own, as many self-paced SHRM-CP preparation materials might require.
The SHRM-CP is available to professionals in the human resources field who meet the specific requirements for experience and education. In order to take the test, you must meet one of these sets of criteria: if you have a graduate degree, you must be in a human resources role, or have at least one year in a human resources role if your degree is not in human resources; if you have a bachelor's degree in human resources, you must have one year experience and if your degree is not in human resources, two years' experience. If you don't have a bachelor's degree, you must have three years experience if your associate degree or certificate is in a human resources related program, or four years if your certificate or associate's degree is not in the HR field.
The SHRM-CP prep programs available from Varsity Tutors are customized to what you need to solidify your knowledge in. Tutors create specialized SHRM-CP test prep methods that work with your knowledge and the way you study. They learn about you to make it easier for you to retain the information they help you to explore. There are several types of questions on the exam: knowledge items that are HR-specific and focused on the 15 functional areas of human resources; there are foundational knowledge items that focus on the eight behavioral competencies, according to SHRM. Situational judgment items assess your judgment and decision-making. There are also field test questions that are not scored as part of your exam.
It may be helpful as part of your SHRM-CP tutoring to know what subject areas you can expect to see on the certification exam; the table below explains those and the breakdown of how content areas are weighted in the exam.
SHRM-CP Exam Breakdown
|Subject Area||Percentage of Exam|
Beyond the breakdown of SHRM-CP topics in the table above, your tutor know that the following behavioral competency clusters will be part of the exam: leadership, business, and interpersonal relations. Specific human resources-related questions will be in these categories: people, organization, and workplace. These are like the rules and regulations of HR. Your tutor will make sure that your SHRM-CP test prep includes these areas.
No matter what your degree is in, you may find SHRM-CP classes with SHRM-CP tutors helpful for review and for test prep outside of the actual material.They can dedicate specific SHRM-CP course time to different topics, and because they've taken the time to get to know your learning style, they'll use techniques that they believe will work for you - in both human resources topics and test-taking.
Varsity Tutors makes every effort to match students and tutors who can work together even if one's schedule is unpredictable. The fact that you can connect for SHRM-CP courses with the organization's Live Learning Platform makes your location irrelevant. Connecting online makes it more convenient, and hopefully less stressful to complete SHRM-CP test preparation.
