For over 70 years, SHRM has served the human resource profession and strived to advance the practice of human resource management. HR professionals worldwide look to SHRM for comprehensive resources to help them contribute more effectively in the workplace, accelerate their careers, and develop strategic perspectives on human resource management.

SHRM regards the SHRM-CP and SHRM-SCP as the global standard in certification for the HR profession.
The SHRM Certified Professional (SHRM-CP) is specifically designed for HR professionals who are responsible for the administrative tasks in their organizations. It is suitable for the early-to-mid career HR professionals who deal with tasks like policy implementation and employee relations.
SHRM Senior Certified Professional (SHRM-SCP) is designed for the senior HR professionals who deal with the strategic matters in their organizations. The strategic tasks include developing an HR strategy to meet the organizational goals and management of HR professionals.
SHRM Advanced/Masters Certificate in HR Management
SHRM Advanced Certificate in HR Management aims to educate the HR practitioners who are at the early stages of their career or those who don’t have any formal education in the field. It is also a globally recognized certification developed by the SHRM BoCK.
SHRM Body of Competency and Knowledge (SHRM BoCK)
The SHRM-CP and SHRM-SCP certifications are built upon the SHRM Body of Competency and Knowledge (SHRM BoCK) which is more than an exam outline.
