Already Certified?  Recertification Incentive!

SHRM has renewed their recertification incentive program for 2018!  This program provides monetary support to both the recertifying member's SHRM Chapter and State Council, so please consider taking advantage of this in 2018. Your recertification cycle will remain the same, but it allows you to get it completed so you don't have to worry about it next year.  If you're a SHRM member the recertification cost is $100, for non-SHRM members the cost is $150.  

As a certified SHRM-CP or SHRM-SCP, you must submit your PDCs or retake the SHRM-CP or SHRM-SCP certification exam throughout your 3-year recertification period ending on the last day of your birth month. Once your recertification request has been approved, your next 3-year recertification period will begin from your existing end date.

If you complete your recertification cycle early, your end date will not change, but any unused or subsequent professional development activities completed within your current certification period cannot be carried over to the next.

Example:
›› Initial certification period: May 2016 (took exam)–July 2019 (birth month)
›› Recertified: December 2018
›› Next 3-year recertification period: July 2019–July 2022
