SHRM Conferences are a great way to work toward the 60 professional development credits (PDCs) you need every three years to maintain your SHRM-CP or SHRM-SCP. Plus, your credits auto-populate in your certification portal, so you can be more focused on learning and less focused on paperwork.

Focus on learning and growing, not on paperwork. SHRM believes that recertification should be about learning and growing in your profession, so we're making the process easier. To eliminate the hassle of memorizing or writing down the Activity ID's for many learning programs that SHRM offers, we've added a new feature to the Recertification Portal: autofill.

From now on, all SHRM conferences, seminars and e-Learning programs that you attend—that can be matched to your SHRM membership account*—will auto-populate in your recertification portal, so you don't have to enter anything yourself. Get started earning your PDCs today!
