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 or retake the certification exam at the end of the 3-year re-certification period.


Recertification 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.
