    Develop your career.

    Enhance your experience and expertise!

    Are you ready to earn your HR certification?

    If you’re planning to take the SHRM Certified Professional (SHRM-CP™) or SHRM Senior Certified Professional (SHRM-SCP™) certification exam, AHRMA’s fourteen-week course will prepare you with the information you need to pass the exam. Through expert instruction and peer discussion with other HR professionals from around the Austin area, you will gain valuable knowledge that will prepare you for your exam. The program curriculum is designed by global subject matter experts and covers the entire SHRM Body of Competency and Knowledge™ (SHRM BoCK™).

    For SHRM exam requirements and dates, visit www.SHRMcertification.org.

    Who Should Sign Up: 

    • Current and aspiring HR practitioners who want to increase their knowledge base
    • Small business owners or office managers who perform the HR function for their company
    • Business managers who want to learn basic HR best practices to enhance their employee experience
    • New or experienced people leaders interested in learning more about employee management skills
    • Representatives selling or supporting HR systems and services

    Learning Outcomes: 

    • Learn the essential roles and responsibilities of human resource professionals
    • Become familiar with human resource-related laws, compliance and liability issues
    • Develop strategies for recruiting the best employees and successfully on-boarding and training them
    • Gain an overview of various compensation and benefits systems

    Why Take the AHRMA Study Group:

    • These days you can’t browse through HR job postings without seeing the inevitable “Certification Required”. Most mid to senior-level HR job postings request a preference for candidates with an HR certification.
    • According to a survey done by Payscale, senior HR professionals who are certified make up to 20K more than their non-certified counterparts.
    • Join 96,000 SHRM certified professionals, the fastest-growing HR certification community. The SHRM-CP and SHRM-SCP are the most widely-taken HR exams in the world.
    • Taking the AHRMA Certification Study Group:
      • Keeps you accountable for learning the material
      • Gives you access to experienced instructors who know the content and the exam structure, and can help you prepare. Each class is taught by an instructor from the local Austin HR Community.  
      • Allows you to learn from and build relationships with other local HR professionals, who are all committed to showing up each week, supporting each other, and sharing their own expertise in class.

    *SHRM requires specific educational and work experience in order to be eligible to sit for the SHRM-CP or SHRM-SCP exam. Learn more on the SHRM website.

    Jessica Miller-Merrill & Beth White

    In 2019, Workology distributed an “HR Artificial Intelligence (AI) Readiness” survey to its global subscriber list of over 100,000 HR practitioners. This survey captured HR feedback to determine the implications and understanding of AI, how HR can leverage same and what implementation strategies HR professionals use to deploy AI. The results of the AI HR Readiness survey will be used to provide data points in this broader discussion of AI on 15 May 2019.

    This presentation, which is accredited for both HRCI and SHRM CEUs, will:

    • highlight the history of Technology in HR, showing software and tools to help HR move the needle from being tactical and administrative to more strategic partnering
    • summarize advances in technologies and related tools supporting AI for HR
    • address macro economic changes in the workforce (demographics, remote workers, gig economy, low unemployment, etc.) that now provide HR an opportunity to use AI
    • summarize some use cases of AI in HR today with potential implications
    • review steps to begin an AI strategy in your organization

    We encourage our AHRMA members to participate in this survey - "HR AI Readiness Survey" (attendance at meeting not required) to provide feedback on AI.


    Jessica Miller-Merrell founded Workology.com in 2005, and the site has twice been listed as a top 75 career resource by Forbes Magazine. She is an HR and Recruiting process and optimization consultant and the author of Tweet This! and most recently The HR Technology Field Guide. Jessica has been listed as the 7th most powerful woman on Twitter and recognized by Forbes as a top 50 social media power user. Her expertise is sought after and sourced by media including the Economist, Forbes, CIO Magazine, CBS, Entrepreneur Magazine, and SHRM’s HR Magazine.


    Beth White has over 15 years experience as a Human Resources professional and more than 10 years in developing software technology with an emphasis on innovation. Beth founded MeBeBot in 2018, with the goal to provide solutions for HR teams as their first step in the path to leveraging artificial intelligence technologies (AI) within their organizations. MeBeBot has launched its first product, the HR TalkBot. By automating FAQ and HR processes for employees, HR gains valuable current data as well as time back in their day to reallocate toward strategic tasks.
