"This SHRM prep course was extremely helpful. Dr. Glass was very knowledgeable and related the topics to her real-world experiences. This class definitely helped me digest the material I was reading. Dr. Glass also broke down the practice problems in a way I could understand to help me find the best answer and solution. I would highly recommend taking this class if you plan on pursuing the SHRM-CP or SHRM-SCP Certification." - Bethany Rennock - Northwestern Mutual, attended Spring 2023 session

"Dr. Glass was a pleasure to learn from and really listened to the needs of the students. All practice exam answers were explained, we went backwards or forwards when necessary, and still managed to laugh a lot! Highly recommended." - Katie, attended Spring 2022

"Three excellent things came from this course: (1) Excellent material, the course provided accurate material to help study for the exam. (2) Excellent educator, Dr. Glass did an amazing job helping us understand how to read and interpret the questions. (3) Excellent people, the people that I met throughout the course provide an amazing network to assist with studying and future connections." -Michael, attended Spring 2022 session

Who is this prep course designed for?
Even if you are eligible to sit for the SHRM-SCP exam, you may still choose to pursue the SHRM-CP. This credential is designed for HR professionals who are engaged primarily in operational roles—implementing policies, serving as the HR point of contact for staff and stakeholders, and/or performing day-to-day HR functions. If this is your focus, the SHRM-CP is likely your best option.

The SHRM-SCP certification is designed for HR professionals at a senior level who operate primarily in a strategic role—developing policies and strategies, overseeing the execution of HR operations, analyzing performance metrics, and/or contributing to the alignment of HR strategies to organizational goals.

Are there any software requirements?
For those attending virtually, a solid internet connection and computer compatibility with Zoom are required. If you need assistance in determining your setup, please reach out to us!

Competency-based learning

The UW Flexible Option is a national pioneer in competency-based education for adult learners. This means, you can earn the project management credential you need to get ahead—without sacrificing your commitments to work and family. 

Competency-based education is all about your ability to prove mastery over the knowledge and skills in the program, not about seat time in a classroom. That means if you already have experience in some areas, you’ll be able to build on that and accelerate your progress. On the other hand, if you’re struggling with a concept and need more time to study it, you can do so without the stress of a looming deadline. 

Benefits of the UW Flexible Option:

  • Complete the certificate 100% online, with no live log-on times or course deadlines
  • Leverage your existing experience to accelerate through the program
  • Earn an accredited credential taught by respected UW faculty 
  • Get started any month of the year 
  • Have a dedicated Success Coach to support you

"I wanted to let you know that doing the project management certificate has really paid off for me.  I was able to frame my existing skills in new ways, and think outside the box when it came to what I might want to pursue.

I am starting a 1/2 time position, which will still allow me to continue my singing career, through the UW extension program.  I'll be working as a regional coordinator for a grant funded farmer's market project.  I'm really excited for this new experience and feel like my confidence in applying for the position came in a large part from doing the project management certificate." - Emily Fons

Why choose the non-credit certificate?

Earning the non-credit project management certificate is a great choice for someone with a bachelor’s degree—or higher—seeking professional development but are not interested in earning additional academic credits. With fixed start and end points, this non-credit certificate gives you 24 weeks to complete the program, so plan your start date at a time that works best for you.

This program has a one-time tuition cost of $1,995.00, which covers the full 24-week program.

Still unsure if this is the best option for you? Call one of our advisers at 608-800-6762, they are happy to answer any questions.
