    It is easy to keep track of your recertification credits!

    The new easy to use app will help SHRM-certified HR professionals keep track of their recertification efforts. The SHRM Certification app was developed exclusively for use by SHRM credential holders with specially designed features to make it easier to maintain and recertify one's SHRM-CP or SHRM-SCP designation.

    The Alaska SHRM State Council is recognized by SHRM to offer Professional Development Credits (PDCs) for the SHRM-CP or SHRM-SCP. We will start to provide PDCs with programs starting in January 2015.


       We will continue to submit our programs for HRCI pre-approval to support our members that are PHR, SPHR or GPHR certified.

    recertification resources


    The following information is a compilation of resources that provide complimentary webinars or information that could be used for recertification. The Alaska SHRM State Council has no relationship whatsoever with these organizations, nor do we benefit in any way from including them on this list. We get many questions from members on quality, no-cost, low-cost resources for recertification, and this is an initial list to help members obtain credits towards their certifications.

    Organizations that Provide Complimentary Webinar

    If you have any information on other organizations, please let us know.
