As a certified SHRM-CP or SHRM-SCP, you must submit your Professional Development Credits(PDCs) or retake the SHRM-CP or SHRM-SCP certification exam throughout your 3-year recertification period ending on the last day of your birth month. Once your recertification application is complete and has been approved, your next 3-year recertification period will begin from your existing end date.

If you complete your recertification 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.

Recertification Application Fee

  • SHRM Members = $100 USD
  • Non-members = $150 USD
***The application fee is non-refundable, whether or not your application is approved.
SHRM-CP and SHRM-SCP credential holders qualify for recertification credits by participating in professional development activities that relate to the SHRM Body of Competency and Knowledge.
