2 The Future of HR Certification  Starting on January 5, 2015, there are two options for HR Certification, HRCI and SHRM  We will discuss both, so hopefully you can decide which is better for you, or if you want to hold both  Let’s start with the new SHRM certifications, SHRM-CP and SHRM-SCP

3  Incorporate the behavioral competencies that HR professionals need for career success  Create the basis for a relevant & credible certification that receives widespread employer support  Establish a universal standard and global brand for HR certification that will be recognized in every region  Provide a streamlined certification program that expands access, minimizes bureaucracy, and supports the continued development of the HR profession 3 SHRM Certification Objectives

4 SHRM Body of Competency and Knowledge The SHRM-CP and SHRM- SCP is based on the SHRM Body of Competency and Knowledge, which includes four key Knowledge Domains and the eight Behavioral Competencies that HR professionals need for career success.

5 In order to be eligible to sit for the SHRM-CP or SHRM-SCP exam, an applicant must meet the specific educational and work experience criteria, outlined below: j SHRM Certification Eligibility Criteria Our eligibility criteria eliminates barriers, emphasizes the value of formal HR education, and provide an accelerated path from the SHRM-CP to the SHRM-SCP. Notes: 1000+ of HR related activity = 1 year of experience; HR experience may be in an exempt or non-exempt capacity; for more information, see *Less than a bachelor’s degree includes: associate’s degree; some college; high school or GED

6 To maintain SHRM-CP and SHRM-SCP certification, certified professionals will have three years to acquire 60 Professional Development Credits (PDCs) in three categories: Advance Your Education, Advance Your Organization, and Advance Your Profession. Recertification All programs that enhance your competencies will qualify for PDCs, giving you great flexibility in designing your professional development plan!

7 Pathway Process  All holders of valid HR generalist certifications may obtain their SHRM-CP or SHRM-SCP via the “pathway” process  Candidates can obtain their SHRM certification by going to, agree to the SHRM Code of Ethics, and complete an online tutorial on the SHRM Competency Model  Volunteer leaders can complete the “pathway” during the VLS; others can complete the pathway from Jan 5 – Dec 31, 2015.  Pathway participants are not asked to “give up” existing certifications!

24 HRCI Certification  PHR® Professional in Human Resources - PHR certification is a great way to establish yourself in the HR field. It proves your mastery of HR operations, best practices and regulations in the U.S., and creates a solid foundation for your future advancement.  SPHR® Senior Professional in Human Resources - The recognized credential for HR leaders in the U.S.  GPHR® Global Professional in Human Resources - Demonstrate your knowledge of cross-border HR.

25 HRCI Certification Recertification credits can be earned in the following categories:  Continuing Education  Instruction  On-the-Job Experience  Research/Publishing  Leadership  Professional Membership

26 HRCI Certification Earning credit involves much more than attending conferences and workshops. Most certified HR professionals earn their recertification credits through the very activities that make them valuable members of their organizations and increase their HR knowledge, including:  Creating leadership development initiatives  Developing a diversity program  Implementing HR best practices participating in contract negotiations with union leaders

27 HRCI Certification All certifications are valid for three years. Recertification is required every three years to maintain your credential. To recertify:  Accumulate 60 credit hours of HR-related continuing education activities completed before the three-year anniversary of your certification cycle and pay a recertification fee of $150 OR  Take the certification exam again

28 HRCI Strategic Partnership The HR Certification Institute (HRCI) announced it will partner with Dave Ulrich and Wayne Brockbank, both renowned HR professors, authors and consultants, in the seventh round of the world’s largest study of HR competencies. Called the Human Resource Competency Study (HRCS), the ongoing project is led by Dr. Ulrich’s RBL Group and the Ross School of Business at the University of Michigan.

29 Which certification should I get (or keep)?  This is an individual choice  If you are currently HRCI certified, why not hold both? Take the Pathways exam for SHRM certification at no charge from 1/5/15 to 12/31/15.  We won’t really know how the SHRM certifications are accepted for a few years  Look for the SHRM Preferred Provider and HRCI logos for pre- approved programs  You can still count programs for recertification, even if the courses have not been pre-approved
