Human Resources Certification


Human Resources Certification is one of the most important credentials you can obtain to make you a recognized expert and leader in the HR field—and a valuable asset to your organization, keeping you and your organization more competitive in today's economy. This professional 
distinction sets you apart from your colleagues, proving your high level of knowledge and skills.   


SHRM is proud to announce that both its competency-based certification exams—the SHRM-CP and SHRM-SCP—have been accredited by the Buros Center for Testing, and recognized as meeting the highest standards in testing. Learn More.


To support our HR membership in this effort, we have a TSHRM Certification Study Group!

To help our members prepare for the exam, TSHRM offers a certification study group for both the SHRM Certification and the HRCI Certification.   This combo class meets for approximately 12 weeks before the exam period.  See our Calendar of Events to register and for the most up to date information on our sessions and when they are offered.

Certification Study Group Facilitators: We are ALWAYS seeking volunteers to facilitate the study sessions as it take a village of volunteers to pull this off!   Please send an email to our  email address and your inquiry will be routed to our Certification Chair. Thank you for supporting the study group!


SHRM Certification Overview (SHRM-CP or SHRM-SCP)


The profession is no longer just about what you know—facts and figures—but rather how you effectively implement that knowledge in the workplace each and every day. SHRM certification provides you the opportunity to prove not only what you know but also how you can apply that knowledge on the job. 

SHRM certifications directly link to on-the-job scenarios and realistic work situations, making them the most relevant certifications available for HR professionals. Seventy-five percent of examinees say the SHRM-CP and SHRM-SCP exams are more job-relevant than any other HR certification.

HR certification must be as inclusive and diverse as the profession itself. Built upon one comprehensive SHRM Body of Competency and Knowledge™ (SHRM BoCK™), SHRM certification is applicable across industries, geographic borders, job responsibilities and career levels. Whether your organization has a global focus or not, customers and talent can come from anywhere, and a universal set of skills is preferred.

The SHRM-CP and SHRM-SCP credentials are based on the current HR landscape, focusing on the competencies and knowledge HR professionals need to lead in today’s business community. Boost your confidence to take that next step in your HR career or to distinguish yourself in a job search.

Based on in-depth research focused on—and backed by—global employers and business leaders, the SHRM-CP and SHRM-SCP credentials reflect what HR practitioners need to know to be leaders in their organizations and in the profession. 


HRCI Certification Overview

HRCI certification is a career-long commitment that demonstrates dedication, credibility and a mastery of the principles of human resources to your employers, clients, staff members and professional peers around the globe. Certification attests to the investment you have made in your HR career and holds a recognized place in the profession.

To become certified, you must meet strict professional experience and educational requirements before taking the exam. To remain certified, you must stay current in the HR profession and recertify every three years. You display your certification by putting the credential after your name. Learn More.
