SHRM has established the SHRM Preferred Provider Program to give organizations that offer education, training and/or other HR-related Competency and Knowledge programming the opportunity to award PDCs, without pre-approval by SHRM, during a 2-year period.




Key benefits to being a SHRM Preferred Provider include being able to:
Award PDCs for individual HR programs, without pre-approval from SHRM, during a 2-year SHRM Preferred
Provider status period.
Publicize itself as a SHRM Preferred Provider.
Use the SHRM Preferred Provider seal on materials.
Include program offerings in a searchable database.
Be listed in a directory of SHRM Preferred Providers.

In addition, being identified as a SHRM Preferred Provider eliminates the guesswork for credential holders, who will know by your status that your program qualifies for recertification credits. Qualified activities may include conferences, college/university courses, seminars, videoconferences, webcasts, audiocasts, podcasts, e-learning,
and other programs.
