Certification September 2016 Update

New SHRM Certification App
Make Recertification Easy
A new SHRM Certification app for iOS devices is available to help SHRM-certified HR professionals keep track of their recertification efforts. This new app was developed exclusively for use by SHRM credential holders with specially designed features to make it easier to maintain and recertify one's SHRM-CP or SHRM-SCP designation. A version for Android is under development and is expected to be available in early 2017.
Certificants who install the SHRM Certification app on their mobile devices will be able to:
  • View certification status and progress toward recertification.
  • Find detailed information on recertification provider activities.
  • Search and filter listings of pre-approved activities by competencies, date or location.
  • Add professional development credits to the dashboard under the "Advance Your Education" section.
  • Track recertification activities that have already been added.
  • Receive notification of when it is time to apply for recertification.
