Certification Preparation

Register now for our online certification prep course and become a recognized expert in human resource management.

Advance your career and demonstrate you are the most qualified and valuable HR professional you can be when you become SHRM-certified. The SHRM Certified Professional® (SHRM-CP®) and SHRM® Senior Certified Professional® (SHRM-SCP®) are the only behavioral competency-based HR certifications, proving not only what you know but also how you can apply that knowledge on the job.

Leaders in HR Certification Prep

At University of Maryland Global Campus, we are leaders in online HR training and SHRM-CP/SHRM-SCP certification preparation. As one of only 275 approved SHRM Education Partners in the world, we are committed to helping HR professionals advance their knowledge, competencies, and skills.

The online UMGC certification prep course includes a structured learning experience with a SHRM-certified instructor and both the online and print versions of the 2022 SHRM Learning System—the official certification prep tool, now updated with retired exam questions. Designed specifically for adult learners, this interactive system combines in-depth HR knowledge with real-life situations to help you master the material and set you up for success on your exam.

Course content reflects the SHRM Body of Applied Skills and Knowledge (BASK). This course of study will in no way guarantee or assure success on the SHRM-CP or SHRM-SCP exam. Students must use the most recent edition of the SHRM educational products for this course and may not use outdated materials.
