Hello Wichita SHRM Membership, There have been a lot of questions and uncertainty regarding the decision by SHRM to launch their own certification program, in direct competition with the established HRCI program.  I went to the national conference, hoping to talk to both parties, but only SHRM was present.  FAQs of information learned at the conference and later received from HRCI includes: Q:  Is SHRM wanting to replace the HRCI certification? A:  Yes.Q:&
The pre-conference certification class starting on Monday Sep 15 and ending Wed Sep 17 right before the conference starts. Members who are HRCI certified before the end of the year will be eligible for the new SHRM certifications rolling out in Jan 2015. Cost is $799. Register through the KS SHRM website!
