Spring 2017 Certification Preparation Course


Jump to: Certification | Registration Information

TCHRA offers a comprehensive 10-week Certification Preparation Course to prepare you for the SHRM certification exam! Our instructors have been trained by SHRM to prepare you for the new exam. SHRM certification has always been the gold-standard for HR professionals. It’s time to get yours!

The Certification Preparation Course will be held Thursday evenings from 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM February 23 - April 27, 2017.

No doubt you have heard that the credentials for HR professionals have changed. Instead of one credential, developed and endorsed by SHRM and administered and tested by HRCI, both SHRM and HRCI are now offering a credential for HR Professionals. But, since SHRM has always been the leading HR authority throughout the nation, we believe that the SHRM certification will continue to be the industry standard. The new credentials: SHRM-CP (SHRM-Certified Professional) and SHRM-SCP (SHRM-Senior Certified Professional) focus on teaching and testing the practical, real-world information that HR professionals need to find success in their careers today! The SHRM credential is the next-generation credential for HR Professionals – a competency-based certification – demonstrating that you know the facts AND how to apply them in the workplace. The TCHRA Certification preparation course will teach to the new global Body of Competency and Knowledge (SHRM BoCK) and prepare participants for the comprehensive exam.

The course will be presented in the Court International Building in Saint Paul - on the border of Saint Paul and Minneapolis - on University Avenue West. This site offers easy access (via highway or the Green Line) and ample free parking in the surface lot. Complete directions and maps will be sent to all class participants.

This course is specifically designed to help participants prepare to pass the SHRM-CP/SCP certification exam. The ten-week sessions offer a broad review of the human resources competencies which are covered on the exam. The TCHRA course is different than many other courses offered, as it utilizes the SHRM Learning System resources coupled with knowledgeable professional instructors who are also subject matter experts currently working in the field – and they certified HR professionals! They are very committed to ensuring that YOU get certified as well!

The TCHRA Course offers class participants a comprehensive classroom experience, as well as individual advice and direction from instructors, and study-group opportunities. The SHRM Learning System class materials are provided to all participants.

What is Certification?

There are two levels of certification covered by this prep course: the SHRM-CP and the SHRM-SCP. Eligibility requirements for the exam are available on the SHRM website:

The SHRM Certification shows that the HR Professional has demonstrated mastery of the HR body of knowledge and has accepted the challenge to stay informed of past, present and future developments within the HR field. To be effective in our work, HR professionals must know how to deal effectively with all aspects of the field, including strategic planning, workforce planning, workplace safety, compensation and benefits, HR development, employee/labor relations, and emerging HR issues. To be competitive in the Twin Cities labor market, HR professionals must show that they are both well-educated and well-credentialed.

The next testing window is May 1 – July 15, 2017

The winter testing window is still open – but so far, 100% of the Fall 2015 Class Participants that have sat for the exam have passed! JOIN THEM – get certified!
