Earn your SHRM HR Credential

Beginning 2017, California State University Channel Islands (CSU) offers a comprehensive six-week SHRM Certification Preparation Course in Goleta to prepare you for the SHRM certification exam. This 36-hour course consists of two 3-hour classes each week on Wednesday and Thursday evenings, running for six consecutive weeks. The course targets the applicable biannual certification testing window that occurs towards the end of each course.  The exam application fee is not included with this course.


The SHRM credentials are the SHRM-CP (SHRM Certified Professional) and SHRM-SCP (SHRM Senior Certified Professional). These professional credentials demonstrate a competency-based certification – that you know the facts AND how to apply them in the workplace.  They signal advanced professional development.  They reflect what HR practitioners need to know to be leaders in their organizations and in the profession.


This six-week course is specifically designed to help participants prepare to pass the SHRM-CP or SHRM-SCP certification exams.  The course:

  • Teaches the new global Body of Competency and Knowledge (SHRM BoCK) and prepare participants for the comprehensive certification exam. 
  • Offers a broad review of the HR competencies covered on the exam. 
  • Utilizes the SHRM Learning System resources coupled with a knowledgeable professional instructor who is a subject matter expert (SME) – and who is also a SHRM-certified HR professional committed to ensuring that you get certified as well. 
  • Offers class participants a comprehensive classroom experience, as well as individual discussion with instructor and study opportunity.
