Opportunities to earn SHRM Recertification Credits

    With the recent cancellation of the 2020 Virginia State Conference and the 2020 National SHRM Conference, many certification holders are asking about recertification credits. 

    SHRM is not planning to grant extensions due to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, the following are opportunities to earn SHRM PDCs:

    • SHRM is hosting many COVID-19 related webcasts that are approved for PDCs, as well as webcasts on other topics - link to webcasts

    • Individuals can submit their COVID-19 related work-based projects for PDCs -  Earning PDCs for Your Work

    • The SHRM Foundation “Veterans at Work Certificate Program” is approved for 10 PDCs and is free -  link for information about the program

    • Because SHRM had to make the decision to cancel SHRM 2020 Annual Conference & Exposition, SHRM will be hosting virtual content approved for PDCs through the remainder of the year, free for SHRM members. This will help SHRM20 registrants get the PDCs they were planning to receive by attending the Conference.

    • Our Chapters and State Councils are also a great resource for virtual programming.

    The above list of opportunities provides ample access to PDCs for recertification, and makes getting the needed PDCs easily available to those whose SHRM certification is coming up for renewal. If you have specific questions regarding their recertification portal and/or PDCs, please email [email protected], or call (800) 283-7476 option 3, and a member of the SHRM Certification/Recertification team will be happy to assist them.
