Can my company download the course for distribution?
No, SHRM eLearning courses can only be accessed through the SHRM eLearning Portal.
Can my company view the course for free?
User Licenses
All SHRM eLearning courses and user licenses are assigned to individual users. SHRM does not have any multiple-user licenses (e.g. sharing the same account to watch courses in a group setting). The only authorized user for a SHRM eLearning Portal account is the individual that is listed as the account holder. Sharing SHRM eLearning Portal accounts is a violation of the Terms of Use This does not prohibit employers from buying courses for their employees. However, an employer must purchase one license per employee. See Purchasing & Order Status for more details.

We strongly recommend that clients maintain updated operating systems (both desktop and mobile) aligned to the latest release made available by the respective vendor.

* Browser notes
Microsoft Edge, Firefox, Chrome and Safari follow a continuous release policy that makes difficult to fix a minimum version. For this reason, following the market recommendation we will support the last 2 major version of each of these browsers. Please note that as of January 2018, we do not support Safari on Windows.

^ Note for Internet Explorer 11:
We recommend that SHRM learners avoid using Internet Explorer. The SHRM LMS will no longer support Microsoft Internet Explorer 11 in January 2020. We will no longer offer maintenance and support related to issues with your platform that occur only on Internet Explorer 11 starting on July 31, 2019. We strongly encourage SHRM learners to use one of the other supported browsers and maintain updated operating systems (both desktop and mobile) aligned to the latest release made available by the respective vendor.

** Note for Windows XP users:
Windows XP is no longer supported by its original vendor, Microsoft, but if your organization has internal policies that have extended the use of Windows XP, SHRM recommends that your PCs be migrated to MS Windows 8 or above at your earliest convenience. If you are unable to upgrade your PCs at this time, we recommend installing the latest version of Google Chrome, as a temporary solution.

Purchasing & Order Status

How do I purchase a product for myself or on behalf of another individual?
  1. Start by logging into the eLearning section in the SHRM Store, here.
    • If you are purchasing a course on behalf of another user, please have the user log into their account for you as the product will be assigned to the purchaser.
    • Or follow the Corporate Purchase steps below.
  2. Once you’ve found the desired course, please confirm that the product has the word ‘Individual’ in the title if you are buying for yourself. If you are ordering on behalf of the company for other users (not for yourself), please follow the Corporate Purchase steps.
  3. Click ‘Add to Cart’ and proceed to Checkout. The course(s) will be assigned to the purchaser’s SHRM account.
Can I purchase and/or assign eLearning products to others in my company?

Yes. The Individual Purchase option will automatically assign the user license to the purchaser, just like with other SHRM products. If you would like to purchase blank user licenses that can be assigned to other staff at your organization, please use the Corporate Purchase option.

As a SHRM eLearning Corporate Administrator (or corporate power user), you are the authorized individual from your organization that can:

  • Purchase user licenses for eLearning courses on behalf of your staff.
  • Receive the self-registration link for managing enrollment of your staff.
  • Track user progress for the staff who register for the course(s).

What is a corporate purchase?

All SHRM eLearning courses are available for Corporate Purchase. The Corporate Products are noted with a tag ‘Corporate’ in the product title. A corporate purchase allows one individual, the "corporate administrator," to purchase user licenses for staff in their organization and to track staff progress on the SHRM eLearning Portal. One corporate administrator is allowed per organization, and corporate administrators are required to use an email address with a business domain associated with the organization they'll be purchasing for. Third-parties and contractors that do not have an email address with the organization are not permitted to hold corporate administrator accounts.

Please also note that, although single licenses can be purchased, corporate purchases do not create shared user licenses—one user license must be purchased per user, per use.

What is the cost for a corporate purchase?
SHRM eLearning only hosts individual user licenses, so one user license needs to be purchased per user. When corporate group discounts are available, please refer to the group pricing table posted on Corporate Product pages on the SHRM Store to determine the cost for each user. Please contact us for enterprise-level orders at enterprisesales@shrm.org. The corporate administrator account is free—we do not charge companies for tracking and reporting capabilities on the SHRM eLearning Portal.
How do I place a corporate order?
  1. Start by logging into the eLearning section in the SHRMStore with your business email address. If your login username is not your business email address, please update it here before proceeding.
    • If you are purchasing on behalf of the corporate administrator, please have the corporate administrator log into their account for you as the corporate purchase request will be submitted from the purchasing account. Please update the email address to the corporate email address if this has not been done so already.
  2. Once you’ve found the desired course title, please confirm that it is a Corporate Product (when buying for other staff, single user or groups, please be sure to select the product with “Corporate” in the title..

    • The purchaser is the approved corporate administrator (for repeat purchases).
    • A valid Corporate URL was given.

    The approval process can take up to one full business day. Once the purchase has been approved, the system will email one self-registration link per course to the corporate administrator. The self-registration link will have the allotted number of licenses.

Login/Password

How do I log into the SHRM eLearning Portal?
To access your eLearning product, please go to the SHRM eLearning portal.
Your username should be the email address that was used to register for access. The password was self-created. Please allow 1-2 business days for provisioning.

Please note that shrm.org and the SHRM Store will not give access to the eLearning content.

If you are a corporate user and do not remember registering your email to take the course, please reach out to your corporate administrator for your self-registration link. After you've registered for the course, you will be able to log in to access it.

How do I reset my password?
Please click use the "Need Help Signing In?" link on the eLearning website and the shrm.org login page. Return to the SHRM eLearning website once you have successfully reset your password.
I've reached the maximum number of login attempts on the eLearning portal. What can I do?
Once you've reached the maximum number of login attempts, you will be locked out for ten minutes. Please wait ten minutes before attempting to log in again.
When does my access expire?
All purchased licenses expire one year after the provisioning date. Course content can be accessed for as long as the user license is active, however please note that Certificates of Achievement will only be issued with the initial completion date.
I made a corporate purchase. How can my staff access the course?

Once the purchase has been approved, the system will send one self-registration link per course to the corporate administrator. The email should look like this:

Corporate administrators must forward this email to staff. Staff users will register themselves for the course. Once registration is complete, please have users access the eLearning content via the SHRM eLearning Portal.

Tip: Unintended registrations can be avoided by advising staff to not share self-registration links and reminding them to only register once. Multiple registrations will result in multiple licenses used. License assignments are permanent and cannot be transferred. Please see the Transfer and Refund policies for more information.

My company purchased a course for me. How do I access it?

If your company made a corporate purchase, your corporate administrator should have emailed a self-registration link to you. It should look like this:

If you did not receive this, please request the link from your corporate administrator. Please do not request the self-registration link from fellow staff members. This could result in misappropriation of user licenses and such errors are subject to the Transfer and Refund policies. If you experience difficulty with self-registration, please send us your email address, your member ID (if applicable), and your company name, and we will be happy to assist.

If you placed an order for a course from your account, please log into the SHRM eLearning Portal using the same email address and password that you use in the SHRM Store. If you have difficulty logging in, please send us your email address and member ID (if applicable).

I'm on a mobile device. How can I access my eLearning content?

SHRM eLearning content can be accessed via the Go.Learn app when using a mobile device. To access your content:

  1. Download the free Go.Learn app from your app store.
  2. Open the app and enter the following as the Platform URL: https://elearning.shrm.org/
  3. Enter your SHRM username and password.
  4. Go to My Courses and Learning Plans and select the course you wish to view.

Please note that administrative functions, such as downloading certificates and tracking progress, must be performed on a PC.

Tracking & Recertification

How can I tell if an eLearning product counts for recertification credit before I buy it?

Please review the SHRM eLearning Library Course Catalog to see which eLearning Library courses count for recertification credit.

A la carte courses will have this detail at the bottom of the course/product description in the SHRM Store.

Can I get certificates for eLearning courses?
Yes, the vast majority of our eLearning courses have Certificates of Achievement which will all be stored in your transcript. Available activity IDs are located on the certificate.
How do I submit the activity IDs for SHRM recertification credit?
SHRM activity IDs are automatically loaded into the SHRM recertification portal on a bi-weekly basis, however if you would like to submit an item sooner, the activity ID can be submitted via the SHRM recertification portal.
What are the limitations for submitting eLearning courses for recertification credit?

SHRM-CP and SHRM-SCP holders can submit up to 60 recertification credits (self-paced). More information can be found here.

How many corporate administrators can we have?

One corporate administrator is allowed per company. This is the only user authorized to track staff progress and purchase more user licenses.

How do we switch corporate administrators?

Please notify us. If the new corporate administrator already has an eLearning account, we will be able to reassign corporate administrator capabilities. If the new corporate administrator does not have an eLearning account, please provide the new corporate administrator's first and last name as well as their email address and we'll be happy to create an account. Once the account is created, the new administrator will need to create a new password. Once this is done, login, tracking, and purchasing will be possible.

Refunds & Transfers

What is the refund policy?
If you are unsatisfied with the product, the wrong product was purchased, or if the license was issued to the wrong user, please submit a refund request directly to SHRM eLearning within two business days of your purchase time. If the course(s) have not been completed, you will be eligible for a full refund.
How do I request a refund?

Please send refund requests to eLearning@shrm.org and include the order number and the reason for your refund request.

An unintended user was registered for the course. What is the transfer policy?

Unfortunately we cannot transfer or "clear" user licenses as license assignments are permanent. If a course was assigned to an unintended user, a new license must be purchased in order to be replaced. Refunds can be requested for the original license, however the refund policy still applies.

Discontinued Products
