2020 FALL SHRM Certification



Important Dates


The fall certification course is tentatively scheduled for 9/21 through 11/9. We are working with the venue to determine the best way to present the course while keeping everyone involved safe. While we hope to be able to meet face-to-face, we may simultaneously offer the course online. If necessary, though, the class will be online only, in a live format. Shortly after purchasing the course, we’ll order your login and physical books for the SHRM Learning System, and they will be sent to the address you provide when you register. You’ll get all the benefits of the SHRM Learning System, both online and the physical books, plus live instruction from a qualified HRACO instructor, for significantly less than if you purchase the Learning System directly from SHRM. Registration will open as soon as we can confirm the venue logistics. An email will go out to all HRACO members when registration opens. You must be a member of HRACO or join at the time you register to enroll in the HRACO SHRM Certification Course.
