Dear SHRM-Certified Professional,

SHRM is proud to announce that the SHRM-CP and SHRM-SCP exams have been accredited by The Buros Center for Testing, a pronouncement that the HR credentials meet the highest standards in testing.

Here is a link to
SHRM’s official news announcement; please share with your work colleagues and HR networks.

The Buros Center is the premier test review center located at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln; it accredited SHRM Certification less than two years after the credentials were launched.


The Buros Center has reviewed or accredited other well-known tests, including major state educational achievement exams; admissions tests for medical school, law school and graduate school; and licensure exams for physical therapists, clinicians and technicians.

To achieve accreditation, SHRM submitted a 1,900-page application documenting its testing practices, methodology and policy. The thorough review process took six months to complete and included site visits of SHRM and its testing vendors.

Since the launch of the SHRM-CP and SHRM-SCP two years ago, SHRM has worked to gain recognition as the global standard in HR certification. Achieving accreditation further demonstrates to HR professionals and their employers that SHRM-certified professionals meet the high standards expected and needed in HR today.

We celebrate this milestone with more than 96,000 SHRM--certified professionals, the fastest-growing HR certification community. The SHRM-CP and SHRM-SCP are the most widely-taken HR exams in the world.

SHRM’s commitment to excellence in HR certification does not end with accreditation; it is a reflection of our continued dedication to advancing the profession.
