Hello! I have a two part question: 1) is it worth it to obtain an SHRM specialty credential if I don’t have the broader SHRM certification? 2) has anyone gotten the People Analytics or Talent Acquistion credential? If so, how valuable was it from a learning perspective? Do you feel it significantly contributed to your knowledge in either area? Thank you!

From my understanding of the speciality certifications you have to either be SHRM-CP or SHRM-SCP credential or sitting for the general certification and speciality at the same time. I sit for the SHRM-CP in two weeks. I’m thinking of applying for the TA or HR dept of one speciality and wondering the same thing. Is it beneficial?

I’m not sure that’s the case. According to SHRM’s website, you don’t need the SHRM-CP/SCP certification in order to obtain the specialty credential.
