Maintain Your SHRM Credential with Recertification
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 development.
HR professionals obtain recertification by engaging in professional development activities that relate to the behavioral competencies and HR knowledge identified in the SHRM BoCK. The incorporation of competencies into the SHRM BoCK greatly expands the range of activities that will qualify for professional development credits (PDCs). To recertify and maintain your credential, you must earn 60 PDCs every three years, or retake the certification exam.
SHRM created three avenues by which SHRM-CP and SHRM-SCP credential holders can earn PDCs:
- >Advance Your Education through continuing education activities such as conferences, seminars, webcasts, e-learning, chapter programs and more.
- Advance Your Organization through supervisor-endorsed work projects that meet or support organizational goals and demonstrate or advance capabilities in one or more of the HR competencies.
- Advance Your Profession through thought leadership and volunteer activities that contribute to the development of the HR profession and the community.
For detailed descriptions of what activities qualify for PDCs, refer to the SHRM Recertification Handbook.

BETA’s 6-week online professional development courses qualify as Advancing Your Education and can be used as PDCs as long as they relate to elements of the SHRM BoCK. https://www.ed2go.com/butlercc/
The SHRM BoCK organizes eight behavioral competencies into three clusters: Leadership (Leadership & Navigation, Ethical Practice), Interpersonal (Relationship Management, Communication, Global & Cultural Effectiveness), and Business (Business Acumen, Consultation, Critical Evaluation). Additionally, the SHRM BoCK organizes the fifteen areas of HR knowledge which comprise the technical competency HR Expertise into three domains: People (HR Strategic Planning, Talent Acquisition, Employee Engagement & Retention, Learning & Development, Total Rewards), Organization (Structure of the HR Function, Organizational Effectiveness & Development, Workforce Management, Employee & Labor Relations, Technology Management), and Workplace (HR in the Global Context, Diversity & Inclusion, Risk Management, Corporate Social Responsibility, U.S. Employment Law & Regulations*).
