Having made waves last year in announcing it was introducing a new certification — and parting ways with the HR Certification Institute (HRCI) — the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) in the United States is now offering an online tutorial pathway to earn that certification.


Current holders of HR generalist certification — including Canada’s Certified Human Resources Professional (CHRP) — have until the end of 2015 to obtain SHRM’s new certification in three “simple steps”: documenting their current certification is in good standing; signing the SHRM code of ethics; and completing a “brief” online tutorial focusing on HR competencies.
