Eight-week Course Starting to Prepare for HR Exams

Posted on January 22, 2016 By

Expand your human resource knowledge and skills by taking an eight-week course and study group from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. on Tuesdays, beginning February 9 to March 29, 2016, at the Monmouth County Library, Shrewsbury branch, 1001 Route 35, Shrewsbury, N.J., to prepare for the SHRM Certified Professional (SHRM-CP) or the SHRM Senior Certified Professional (SHRM-SCP) exam.

The cost of $600 for members and $750 for non-members includes books with the usual retail price of $695 for SHRM members and $870 for non-members, access to the SHRM resource center for self- testing and support, and paper power point documents that illustrate the framework for each module.

Also included with the books are the online learning system that provides an assessment to test knowledge, tests with more than 1000 questions, a post test that mimics the certification exam, and a resource center with study aids, such as flash cards.

For more information or to register, contact Carolyn Broderick, SPHR, SHRM-SCP, HRIP, the director of certification for Jersey Shore Association of Human Resources (JSAHR), Neptune, at carolynbrod@gmail.com.

The course is designed to provide HR professionals with a roadmap for developing capabilities to advance their careers and to improve their effectiveness in the workplace.

The SHRM competency model is fundamental to the two new certifications: the SHRM CP and the SHRM SCP, which have been launched to reaffirm the importance of acquiring the competencies and knowledge, not just the knowledge; and to provide relatable indicators of proficiency in the practice of HR.
