How to Earn Free Credits – HRCI and SHRM Websites



Please note the following improvements to SHRM’s Recertification Process:

Earn and Record PDCs During the Grace Period

If you are recertifying, you can earn PDCs for activities you participate in through your grace period (the 60-day period between your certification end date and expiration date).

Immediately Begin Earning PDCs for New Recertification Cycle When You Recertify Early

The new recertification cycle for SHRM Certification holders who recertify will begin the NEXT DAY after you recertify.  Your end date will continue to be on the last day of your birth month. 

Carry Over a Maximum of 20 Credits to the Next Recertification Cycle

SHRM Certification holders who recertify with more than 60 credits in their account will be able to carry over up to 20 credits to their new cycle.
