Professional Certification Study Course - Cancelled


Francis Tuttle Technology Center, 12777 N. Rockwell, Oklahoma City, OK
September 9th, 2019 5:30 PM - 7:30 PM


A Fall 2019 study class is planned from Monday, September 9 through Monday, November 11, 2019. This study group will be coordinated by OCHRS VP-Certification & Professional Development, Linda Clark, and will include a variety of HR professionals supporting the learning environment with a range of subject matter expertise, testing strategies, and question/answer time, along with the cooperative nature of learning from peers as you pursue excellence via certification. The object of this group is to provide support and focused time for the HR professional pursuing one of many certification possibilities.

  • You do not have to belong to OCHRS or SHRM to participate. OCHRS will offer the SHRM Learning System study guide set for purchase, but that is not a requirement to participate.
  • The group meets on Monday evenings from 5:30-7:30pm at Francis Tuttle Technology Center’s main campus, 12777 N Rockwell, Room D1870.  This room is on the west end of the campus with easy access through the door for Business and Industry Services with parking in Lot D.
  • Presented material is the current year 2019.
  • Pricing options include a $50 charge for an OCHRS member that does not need to purchase the SHRM Learning System or $675 if they want to purchase the current SHRM Learning System.

Pricing options for Non-OCHRS members include $150 for the non-member that does not need to purchase the SHRM Learning System or $725 for the Non-OCHRS member that does include the purchase of the SHRM Learning System.  

  • You will have access to .pdf materials in advance of classes. This is a study group so you should read and prepare in advance. Instructors intend to cover high points, challenging areas, and provide experience to help you connect the concepts. This is not the instructional level of a prep course. If you need a full prep course, we are happy to connect you with 12-week prep courses offered in the area.
  • Participants have access to a closed Facebook group for announcements and conversation. We encourage you to connect to support each other if you miss a class, need assistance with a concept, or want some additional peer-to-peer study time.
