    Study Groups

    The South King County HR Association Chapter offers twice yearly study groups to help you prepare for the exam.  Study sessions generally run for 13 weeks, finishing right as the testing window begins.  They are generally held once weekly in a location nearby, and are free to Chapter members. The study groups use the most recent versions of the SHRM Learning System™ study materials.
