SHRM-CP or SHRM-SCP Credential Holders Must:
- Earn 60 Professional Development Credits (PDCs) within a 3-year recertification period that ends on the last day of the credential holder’s birth month
- Retake the certification exam at the end of the 3-year re-certification period.
Re-certification Timeline and Fees:
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 re-certification period ending on the last day of your birth month. Once your re-certification application is complete and has been approved, your next 3-year re-certification period will begin from your existing end date.
If you complete your re-certification 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.
Re-certification Application Fee:
SHRM Members = $100 USD
Nonmembers = $150 USD
The application fee is non-refundable, whether or not your application is approved.
