About The Course

SHRM-Atlanta's intensive, in-person exam review course prepares attendees to sit for HR certification exams. Weekly courses begin with orientation on August 15, 2019 and will be held once per week (every Thursday), with the final day of class on November 14, 2019.

Seating is limited to 25, so make sure to sign-up early!

The purpose of the HR Certification Exam Review Course is to provide a high level overview of the knowledge and skills necessary to accomplish the goal of certification. This includes:

  • The Body of Knowledge required for the exam
  • The competencies that will be assessed on the exam
  • A structured learning environment with an engaging expert instructor 
  • Real world advice and answers to your questions
  • Test taking tips, strategies and practice examples
  •  A cohort of your HR peers which provides study group support
  • The full print/online version of the 2019 SHRM Learning System, including quickstart videos, practice questions, flashcards and more (retail: $985)

The SHRM Body of Competency and Knowledge (SHRM BoCKā„¢) is the basis for the SHRM credentials. The SHRM BoCK describes the behavioral competencies and HR knowledge which HR professionals need for effective job performance and organizes eight behavioral competencies into three clusters:

  • Leadership (Leadership & Navigation, Ethical Practice)
  • Interpersonal (Relationship Management, Communication, Global & Cultural Effectiveness)
  • Business (Business Acumen, Consultation, Critical Evaluation). 

Additionally, the SHRM BoCK organizes 15 areas of HR knowledge which comprise the technical competency HR Expertise into three domains:

  • People (HR Strategic Planning, Talent Acquisition, Employee Engagement & Retention, Learning & Development, Total Rewards)
  • Organization (Structure of the HR Function, Organizational Effectiveness & Development, Workforce Management, Employee & Labor Relations, Technology Management)
  • Workplace (HR in the Global Context, Diversity & Inclusion, Risk Management, Corporate Social Responsibility, U.S. Employment Law & Regulations*)
