Certification Study Group Success

Congratulations on the Successful Completing of the 2019 SHRM Certification Prep Class! 

The LWHRA Spring 2019 Certification Exam preparation class has been successfully completed! The program raised a lot of interest with 25 students attending and completing the course in preparation for the Spring 2019 SHRM-CP/SHRM-SCP Exams. Study group participants are still taking exams as the SHRM testing window runs from May through July. All exam results are self-reported, but we know for sure that two students have passed. Congratulations to those students! And we wish success for all other students who are still working to complete their tests.

“There's no way I would have passed the SHRM-CP exam without enrolling in the LWHRA Certification program.” – Sal Canino, Attendee LWHRA Spring 2019 Certification Preparation Class

A warm thank you to all eight amazing HR professionals who shared their knowledge and time as volunteer speakers in the LWHRA Spring 2019 Certification Exam preparation classes. Each brought different HR backgrounds and knowledge to the class. We covered the full SHRM Body of Knowledge and Competencies, ranging from HR Strategic Planning and Talent Acquisition to Workforce Management and US employment Law, which was critical for the success of the program. Volunteer speakers used different teaching methods to spark discussion, engage, and encourage the study group in learning. 

This year, we introduced new platforms for study group participants to use - Basecamp and Zoom. Basecamp provided the participants with a helpful discussion board to network with peers, discuss study materials, find group files, and get the latest class updates. Zoom was used as a virtual networking platform that allowed students to have weekend make-up sessions. These tools offered a great benefit and will be used to support future LWHRA Certification Exam Preparation programs.

Finally, the LWHRA Spring 2019 Certification Exam preparation program wouldn’t have been possible without the dedication of our wonderful LWHRA certification committee. They diligently planned, organized, and managed this amazing LWHRA member resource. LWHRA certification committee Chair Megan Lynn shared that the committee grew from one volunteer at the start of the sessions to four volunteers by the end, which helped to support the success of the program. Thank you to our amazing LWHRA volunteers!


Planning for LWHRA Fall 2019 Certification Exam preparation program is already in full swing! We cannot wait to share more about it soon! If you are interested in helping, please fill out the volunteer interest form here and let us know about you.
