    HRCI and SHRM Certification 

    The value of obtaining and maintaining your credential in a rapidly changing business world.
    Because the HR profession is constantly changing and evolving, it is important for our members to continually update their HR competencies and knowledge. HRMA of Princeton seeks to support our chapter members in their professional development by encouraging them to become certified human resource professionals, and keep their certifications current by offering recertification credits for our dinner meetings and other chapter events.
    As of January 1, 2015 the HRMA of Princeton will be providing recertification credits both for professionals certified through HRCI as well as for those to become certified through SHRM. We would like to point out that HR professionals will be able to hold certifications through both institutes simultaneously.
    For those seeking certification through SHRM, please refer to the certification preparation courses offered to HRMA members at Mercer County Community College, at a discounted member rate.
    For those who already hold a valid HR certification (PHR, SPHR, GPHR, HRBP, HRMP, IPMA-CP, CHRP, SHRP, MCIPD & FCIPD) and are in good standing, or who become certified by January 31, 2015, and wish to also obtain a certification through SHRM, the Online Pathway Certification Tutorial opens up on January 5, 2015 and this window is open until December 31, 2015.  It will take about one hour of your time and is no cost to you.  Visit for more details or to get started right away.  You can do this at any time during 2015, but why wait?  Get it now!
