SHRM Certification & Recertification

With a robust programming schedule, networking opportunites, and "roll up your sleeves" hands-on experience on the the Hill, Advocacy@Work is a great way to work toward the 60 professional development credits (PDCs) you need to maintain your SHRM-CP or SHRM-SCP.

SHRM aims to bring you the most robust and valuable conference experiences to help further your persoanl and professional developement. Each conference provides unique learning experiences and opportunites, and PDCs are calcuated on and event-by-event basis. As we develop our 2021 programming, we will update you with how many PDCs you can earn from this event. In the meantime, learn more about eaning or maintaining certification.

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!
