SHRM Test Preparation

We have the class to fit your personal learning style. Three class formats to choose from! -- Standard Classroom, Fully Online, or Weekend Bootcamp.  The Standard Classroom meets 1 day a week for 3 hours for 12 weeks at either the main or downtown CCSU campus in New Britain, CT.  The online class consists of scheduled 1.5 hour Zoom meetings on Monday evenings for 12 weeks.  8 of these Zoom sessions are pre-recorded and available to re-watch and review at any time.  The other 4 Zoom sessions will be live “check-ins” tailored to the students’ needs and students will be able to interact fully with the instructor during each live session. The instructor is also available via email and will generally respond within 24 hours to questions. The Weekend Bootcamp is an accelerated format, meeting full days on Saturdays.  All classes include the SHRM Materials, access to the online Learning Center, as well as expert instruction and guidance.

What’s the Value of SHRM Certification?

Set Yourself Apart with SHRM Certification

In the ever-evolving human resources landscape, it can seem difficult to stand out and prove your value. However, by earning your SHRM Certified Professional (SHRM-CP®) or SHRM Senior Certified Professional (SHRM-SCP®), you can prove your knowledge, competency, and value to colleagues and to employers looking for a competitive edge in today’s global economy.

Commit to Your Career

HR professionals like you are facing new and larger challenges each day due in part to a changing workforce, shifting legislation and regulations and so much more. Ensure you’re prepared for these changes, and anything else thrown your way with SHRM’s global HR credentials, SHRM-CP and SHRM-SCP.

Unlike memorization-based certification credentials, SHRM certification measures an HR professional’s most critical skill: the ability to apply HR principles to real-life situations. No other exam compares.

By becoming SHRM certified, you prove your knowledge, competency and value to colleagues and to employers looking for a competitive edge in today’s global economy. Wherever your career takes you, your SHRM certification will define you as an HR expert and leader.



“Taking a course and exam doesn’t make you a guru, but it gives a better understanding of HR issues in today’s fast paced global world and your local one. It also helps you to look for help when you need it and how to connect with other professionals.”

Justyna Davila, SHRM Certification Prep Graduate

“We must develop a positive vision, and these classes help us to develop that vision which in turn will help to create positive actions and events. It’s a great starting point to learn more and enhance ones HR career.”

Carol Marut, SHRM Certification Prep Graduate

“The SHRM Learning System is an outstanding certification prep program! My instructor brought the material alive with his 30+ years as a successful HR practitioner. The classroom discussions were always lively, and the opportunity to network with HR peers was wonderful. I highly recommend the SHRM Education Partner Program to anyone contemplating the certification exam. I am thrilled to be a SHRM-SCP, and I credit the course for my success.”
