  • Certification, which covers expert-developed exam preparation modules for HRMP, HRBP, and GPHR credentials.

     Instructors for the courses are selected to meet the rigorous standards agreed to by SHRM and JHRS. Qualified instructors, at the minimum, have at least five years experience in HR practice and proven training experience in the classroom and corporate setting. They also hold the appropriate HRCI certification related to any SHRM education course they are teaching.

     With more than 250,000 members in more than 140 countries, SHRM is an influential voice in the global HR landscape. Its initiatives and programs are anchored in the Society’s mission to create platform learning solutions and expertise on people management issues – which also reflect the JHRS Academy’s mission of strengthening the HR body of knowledge, skills and competencies to be on a par with global HR standards.
