Program Overview
Do you need help preparing to take your SHRM-SCP exam? The SHRM-SCP Power Prep Course will help you learn to apply your knowledge of the SHRM Body of Competency and Knowledge (BoCK) to the SHRM-SCP exam.

This one-day interactive course introduces several key learning techniques aimed at helping you prepare for the exam. Learn to make the best use of your study time, implement strategies that help reinforce learning and memory, and apply practical test-taking tips for passing challenging multiple-choice exams. Participate in individual and group exercises focused on mastering the SHRM-SCP exam’s two types of multiple-choice questions: stand-alone knowledge-based items that assess a candidate’s knowledge and understanding of factual information, and scenario-based situational judgment items that assess a candidate’s judgment, application, and decision-making skills. Take an in-depth look at situational judgment items, how they are created, and how to respond using your knowledge of the BoCK. By the end of the program, walk away with a customized study plan that fits your study style and timeline.
