** SHRM must comply with international trade sanctions imposed by the U.S. government. These sanctions prohibit SHRM from providing certain products and services to, or contracting with certain individuals or organizations located in designated countries, or persons or organizations that are designated on a U.S. government maintained list. For this reason, applicants who are located in, or are residents of or are ordinarily resident in countries subject to sanctions, will be subject to additional screening, and, in some cases, may be ineligible to be a SHRM Instructor. By applying to be a SHRM Instructor, you agree to provide us with any additional information we may request in order to perform any additional screening required.
