The New SHRM Certification Information

ALREADY CERTIFIED? ONLINE TUTORIAL PATHWAY 

SHRM is proud of your achievements and recognizes the time, money and energy you have invested. As an organization committed to its members, SHRM will continue to support and recognize your expertise.

Now your path to even greater opportunity is simple and clear. Your existing HR certification constitutes your eligibility to earn the SHRM-CP or SHRM-SCP which indicates to the global HR community that you have the competencies, knowledge and skills to perform effectively in today's ever-changing workplace.

If you are a current holder of an HR generalist certification (including: PHR, SPHR, GPHR, HRBP, HRMP*) or will obtain your certification by January 31, 2015, you are eligible for SHRM's new certification—at no cost—by completing the following three simple steps between January 5 and December 31, 2015:

  • Document that your current certification is in good standing.
  • Sign the SHRM Code of Ethics.
  • Complete a brief online tutorial on HR competencies.

Once you complete this process, you will earn the new SHRM credential and begin a three-year SHRM recertification cycle.

You will not lose or have to give up any of your current credentials in order to obtain the new SHRM Certification.

Sauk Columbia Society for Human Resource Management

    Welcome to the Sauk Columbia Personnel Association! 

    In 1995 the Reedsburg Area Personnel Association (RAPA) was created. The group only met in Reedsburg, WI. In April 2002 our group's name was changed to Sauk County Personnel Association (SCPA). Also, in April 2002 we became the local affiliate chapter of the Society For Human Resource Management (SHRM). In 2010, our name was changed to Sauk Columbia Personnel Association to acknowledge our expanded membership. The chapter operates on a program year that normally runs from September through May. This is a great opportunity to network with other HR and Safety professionals in the Sauk County area. We have over 50 members, and our meeting topics range from legislation affecting the HR profession to safety issues to personal development and well being.
