CHRP Competency Framework
In recognition of the growing contribution that human resources professionals are making to companies and organizations across the country, the Canadian Council of Human Resources Associations (CCHRA) has upgraded and unified the qualifications that HR practitioners must meet to earn the Certified Human Resources Professional (CHRP) designation in Canada.
The CHRP Competency Framework details the pathway to the CHRP designation. It is built upon the results of the evidence-based process undertaken in the 2013 Professional Practice Analysis. The Framework is based on a dual-competency model, featuring both the technical (or functional) and general (or enabling) skills, abilities and knowledge necessary to effectively practice human resources.
The CHRP Competency Framework outlines 44 professional competencies organized in nine functional areas of knowledge that candidates must know to earn their certification. The Framework also outlines five enabling competencies that complete the professional’s skill set. It also specifies the proficiency level at which each competency is to be demonstrated and how it will be assessed. The competencies and proficiency levels detailed in the Framework represent the minimum requirements to meet CHRP certification.
