The SHRM Learning System® For HR Professionals

Bluegrass Community & Technical College is pleased to announce its partnership with the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM), the world's largest association devoted to human resource management, to offer courses to help HR professionals prepare for SHRM's new competency-based certification: the SHRM Certified Professional (SHRM-CP) and SHRM Senior Certified Professional (SHRM-SCP) credentials.

SHRM announced in May 2014 that it was developing a new certification based on the SHRM Competency Model, which identifies eight behavioral competencies and one technical competency - HR Knowledge or HR Expertise - that HR professionals need to advance their careers and improve the effectiveness in the workplace.

With the help of outstanding certification preparation tools from SHRM, our courses will help professionals prepare for the SHRM-CP and SHRM-SCP exams, which are based on a single, comprehensive SHRM Body of Competency and Knowledge and are relevant worldwide, giving professionals the recognition and flexibility to use their knowledge, skills and competencies anywhere their career takes them.

The next SHRM Certification preparation course will be in the fall of 2015. For more information, please contact Sheila Simpson via e-mail at or call 859.246.2276.

Some companies may be eligible for funding from KCTCS-TRAINS to help offset the cost of training.
