About The Course

SHRM-Atlanta's intensive, in-person exam review course prepares attendees to sit for HR certification exams. This course begins with an optional orientation on Thursday February 1, 2018 and classes will be held on select Saturdays, with the last course on March 24.

Seating is limited to 25, so make sure to sign-up early!

The purpose of the HR Certification Exam Review Course is to provide a high level overview of the knowledge and skills necessary to accomplish the goal of certification. This includes:

  • The Body of Knowledge required for the exam
  • The competencies that will be assessed on the exam
  • A structured learning environment with an engaging expert instructor 
  • Real world advice and answers to your questions
  • Test taking tips, strategies and practice examples
  •  A cohort of your HR peers which provides study group support
  • The full print/online version of the 2018 SHRM Learning System, including quickstart videos, practice questions, flashcards and more (retail: $985)

The SHRM Body of Competency and Knowledge (SHRM BoCK™) is the basis for the SHRM credentials. The SHRM BoCK describes the behavioral competencies and HR knowledge which HR professionals need for effective job performance.

The SHRM BoCK organizes eight behavioral competencies into three clusters:

  • Leadership (Leadership & Navigation, Ethical Practice)
  • Interpersonal (Relationship Management, Communication, Global & Cultural Effectiveness)
  • Business (Business Acumen, Consultation, Critical Evaluation). 

Additionally, the SHRM BoCK organizes 15 areas of HR knowledge which comprise the technical competency HR Expertise into three domains:

  • People (HR Strategic Planning, Talent Acquisition, Employee Engagement & Retention, Learning & Development, Total Rewards)
  • Organization (Structure of the HR Function, Organizational Effectiveness & Development, Workforce Management, Employee & Labor Relations, Technology Management)
  • Workplace (HR in the Global Context, Diversity & Inclusion, Risk Management, Corporate Social Responsibility, U.S. Employment Law & Regulations*)
