CHRP Qualifications

The CHRP designation represents a commitment to a national standard of excellence, sets a benchmark for effective human resources practices, and emphasizes the strategic role of human resource management in business. To pursue the CHRP, you must meet the following qualifications:

  1. Association Membership

    To obtain and maintain the Certified Human Resources Professional (CHRP) designation, you must be a member in good standing with your provincial HR association.

  2. National Knowledge Exam

    The National Knowledge Exam® (NKE) assesses your understanding of HR knowledge and skills. After you have passed the exam, you are considered a candidate for certification.

  3. Degree Requirement

    You must hold a minimum of a bachelor’s degree from an accredited college or university.

  4. Experience Requirement

    Submit a completed experience assessment which is validated by your current employer. This assessment must prove:

    • A minimum of three years working in an HR role within the last ten years.

    • Experience gained at the professional level and a level of autonomy in the application of your HR knowledge. It is not necessary to be a manager or supervisor.

    To maintain a current designation, you will need to retain your membership with your provincial association and recertify your CHRP every three years.

    Note: The CHRP is a provincially granted designation. As such, requirements may vary slightly in your province. Please also consult your provincial association’s website for details on requirements.
