These professional certifications can open doors for professional advancement, serve to harmonize standards with changing expectations and signal to employers advanced professional development. This intensive, 12-week program combines expert instruction with the 2020 SHRM Learning System® for SHRM-CP/SHRM-SCP, so you will learn faster, retain more knowledge and stay on track for success on the exam. This year, the program will be offered in a hybrid format, with sessions held virtually and in-person, whenever possible.


The following topics can be offered as customized leadership and management development programs for a group of your employees.
