Graduates will be eligible to earn the Certified Human Resources Professional (CHRP) designation granted by the Human Resources Professional Association (HRPA). This professional designation signals to employers that a candidate has the education and experience requirements to be successful in human resources.
Qualified graduates may also be eligible to participate in an articulated program with select universities, institutes and professional associations. These partnerships will allow them to apply academic credit towards further study.
The Human Resources Management program's educational partners are:
- Davenport University
- Griffith University
- University of Western Sydney
The requirements in HRPA’s certification framework have their foundation in the Registered Human Resources Professionals Act, 2013. Currently, the CHRP designation has three requirements:
- HRPA membership in good standing
- Successful completion of the prescribed course work requirement
- Successful completion of the prescribed knowledge exam [CKE1]
You must be a member of HRPA and you must have completed the course work requirement before youare eligible to attempt the knowledge exam. As of spring 2016, a Job Ready program must also be successfully completed, and as of summer 2016, an HR law exam must also be successfully completed.
