If you attended Birkman Signature Certification anytime after August 9, 2017, then yes, you qualify for SHRM Professional Development Credits (PDCs) that you can use toward renewing your SHRM credential.
Birkman Signature Certification earns 28 SHRM PDCs.
If You Attended a Certification Outside the United States
Currently, certain Birkman Learning Partners are using the Birkman Signature Certification curriculum (approved for SHRM PDCs) and some are not. Please confirm with your facilitator directly if the Birkman Signature Certification curriculum was used in the course you attended.
If You Attended a Certification Prior to August 9, 2017
Birkman Signature Certification was built to comply with SHRM PDC guidelines and achieved accreditation in August 2017. Any Birkman Certification courses held prior to August 9, 2017 were held prior to achieving the accreditation, and thus are not eligible for SHRM PDCs.
Even if you attended a Birkman Certification in the past, you are welcome to attend a Birkman Signature Certification in the future and earn SHRM PDCs as you refresh your Birkman knowledge.
