Earn FREE Recert Credits Ways to get FREE recertification credits SHRM membership, 3 credits each year SHRM webcasts and archives Each webcast counts for at least 1 credit, and some are HR (PHR), some business (SPHR) and some global (GPHR) On-the-job learning If you are doing something NEW at work that broadens your knowledge of HR, it will count for credit (examples: rolling out a new 401K plan, developing a strategic planning for your department, researching new healthcare plans, developing a new compensation system Instruction: 1 hour taught = 1.5 credit hours awarded. Includes courses taught at work such as workplace violence prevention, sexual harassment prevention, supervisory training, safety training, etc. Research, write, or publish on HR topics, even in your local newspaper or chapter newsletter or website. Once you are certified, you must recertify every three years. You must earn 60 hours of credit during that time. If you are working on your degree, just one 15-week, 3-credit course counts for 45 credits! How many of you teach HR-related training programs in your organizations? That will count as 1.5 hours of credit for each hour you teach. You can’t count 10 sessions of the same course, however. You can count a training program only once. HR-related training, seminars, courses, etc., will count. It does NOT have to be “pre-approved.” When you learn something new at work, like when you roll out a new pension plan or 401K plan, that counts. If you write articles for a local business paper or conduct research, that counts. If you are on the board of this chapter or in an HR-related role on your Chamber board, or some other HR-related leadership activity, that counts. SHRM membership counts. Sessions you attend do not have to be pre-approved by HRCI. For example, you can attend an HR course offered by a local law firm, and that would count. It’s easy to get the 60 hours. Most people earn 60 hours of credit well before the deadline. Don’t let your certification lapse. Also, make sure that the Institute has your CURRENT contact information. HRCI and SHRM are separate organizations with different databases, so update your information with HRCI. All of their reminder notices are now sent via , so if they do not have your address, you will not receive a recertification reminder. Also, you can record all of your credits online as you go. You DO NOT need to provide any backup documentation for your credits unless requested. Keep them in case you are audited, but do not send them to the Institute. If you do not recertify before the 3-year deadline, you are no longer certified and must stop using the initials after your name. Keep your verification in case you are audited, but you do not need to turn it in. 34

For students enrolled in at least 6 hours, it is $35. If you are a chapter member and have never been a SHRM member, you can join using the promotional code 0118 to receive a discount. If you are having difficulty “selling” membership to your boss, consider this: The annual membership costs less than about one HOUR of an attorney’s or a consultant’s time. Also, you get professional development at your desk (no travel or hotel costs) and quick answers to your questions without leaving the office. If you want to ensure that your company continues to pay your membership fee, whenever you get an answer, an article, or a resource from the SHRM site, be sure to tell your boss where you got it. Show your boss the value your company is getting from SHRM.

At the start of the presentation, I promised that you would be ready to go back to your office to use your SHRM membership to its fullest extent. You learned about resources from SHRM for information, education, networking, recertification, and advocacy. I hope you have seen that SHRM can be your “solution” for doing your job more effectively and efficiently. SHRM is constantly adding new resources and trying to be ahead of the curve in providing you with what you need when you need it. As we close the program, I would like to ask you if you learned anything today that you didn’t know. Did you hear about a benefit you were not aware of?
