    Hi, Gregory. Congratulations on passing the SHRM-CP exam!  This is wonderful news!


    You received a provisional pass report when you completed your exam at the testing center. Approximately 3-4 weeks after sitting for the exam, you will receive an e-mail directing you to retrieve your official results from your SHRM Certification portal. You will also receive an official congratulatory letter, hard-copy certificate and lapel pin. The letter confirms that you passed the exam, successfully completing the certification process.


    You should wait until you receive your official exam results before using your SHRM-CP credential (see the SHRM Certification Handbook, pages 21 & 24).


    I hope this is helpful. Please email me at sherry.johnson@shrm.org if I can be of further assistance.


    Once again, congratulations on achieving your SHRM credential!
